This has been sitting here as a draft for months, and when I say months I mean ‘almost a year,’ ten months to be exact. I just cannot find the words to accompany these photos, this day trip was my first experience of Auckland’s West coast beaches. I was absolutely floored with how rugged, unspoiled, and how absolutely beautiful Whatipu beach is that I just left this here sitting unpublished.

We started off with a walk to the caves. It probably took us just under an hour going to and from the largest cave. We then walked to the beach, took photos, walked around, some scored a few wild mussels.

We had to drive to Huia as open fire barbecues are not allowed in Whatipu.

It was a great day, capped by a simple and lovely barbecue. I wonder why anything on the barbie tastes better after a day at the beach.
