Take a "stroll on the wild side" at New Zealand's Muriwai Beach State Park. Appreciate the sublime sea scene while strolling along the desolate dark sand shoreline or climbing precipice trails with their excellent vistas and striking flying creature viewing. For sports aficionados, hill surrey driving, surfcasting, even horseback riding luxuries are accessible. Only 45 km from Auckland, Muriwai is ideal for one-day drive, field trip or medium-term stay outdoors. .
