The dramatic landscape of the West Coast of Auckland is a myriad of stunning views and endless photo opportunities. The black sand beaches of Bethells and Piha are theatrical and mesmerizing, both can be enjoyed with great cafe food and a delicious coffee. The West Auckland vineyards produce rich, ripe red wines and mouth-filling chardonnay and viognier. There are hundreds of artisan producers dotted around, look out for organic honey and goats cheese to name a couple. Each weekend there are farmers markets and a fabulous flea market at Avondale racecourse, where Chinese and Thai herbs and vegetables are fresh and fragrant. In the early summer months the region is famous for plump delicious strawberries with roadside cafes making strawberry ice cream made with fresh fruit from the fields. Keep your eyes peeled for roadside fruit stalls with local apples and pears from the orchards. Residents and visitors to West Auckland enjoy the Hallertau Brewery and the historic Riverhead pub. The Hallertau brews spectacular flavourful beers.
