Karioitahi location is around the Manukau harbour making this west coast beach a separate day trip to this location. Karioitahi is not one of those beaches where the golden sands shimmer in the evening light. The beach is iron coloured sand. It has wind that rips words from your mouth and carries them away. It has menacing waves that crash and silent rips that wait to strike. Karioitahi is the kind of beach that tramples egos and forces you to realise that without people, the Earth would continue to revolve.
Because of these things Karioitahi has a raw, elemental coal black beauty. Castaways Resort sits atop of the cliffs of Karioitahi Beach. Luxury accommodation, the wild west coast has that on offer as well as camping sites. If a bit of pampering is what you need, you can indulge in the tranquil day spa. For a getaway guaranteed peace and quiet, no mobile cover, very few people, other than a great chef and the team of Castaways and an outdoor bath, a great weekend escape on the doorstep of Auckland.
A great reason to visit Karioitahi Beach:
- luxury accommodation
- 360o views of west meet wild ocean
- sunset views for a perfect close to the day
- four wheel drive adventures on request.
- for locals by locals, pampering doesn’t come any better.
