Muriwai is a place of rugged beauty, situated on New Zealand’s wild West Coast. It’s dramatic volcanic black sand and pounding surf make it an impressive site indeed! It is a well known spot for surfers with Maori Bay over the hill being a known hot spot. It is also home to famous cliff top Gannet nesting area, which is home to around 1200 gannets nesting from August to March. I had the pleasure of residing in Muriwai for a time many moons ago…
