drive on beach, walk less.
If you are like me who doesn’t like walking too much, this one is for you.
Karioitahi beach is located in Franklin, a rural town on the outskirt of Auckland; a beach that you can drive your car as close to the water as possible. Theres also is a waterfall near the entrance, and it’s really to get there, not much of a climb. You can fish, hike, drive, swim, horse riding, surf, and even paraglide there.
It was the second time I drove on the beach, it was so awesome that I forgot my speed and almost flip my car over. So, do watch your speed on the beach.
If you do plan on swimming and/or surf there, do swim/surf between the flag as the water can get rough there.
have fun and enjoy.
