Tasman Lookout

The access to Tasman Lookout Track is at the south end of Piha Beach, next to the car park below the cliff. This narrow track heads up the side of the cliff, with safety rails in one section where there is an especially steep drop.

As you head up, you can enjoy great views of Lion Rock. At the top, on the edge of the cliff, there is an excellent viewpoint, with a stone wall, that looks over much of the beach, Taitomo Island, and around to The Gap. It is a perfect place for sunset and watching surfers at the south end of the beach.

Continue along the track beyond the viewpoint to a second with a better view of The Gap and Taitomo Island. The track terminates at beach level behind The Gap, and you can easily walk back around the sand between the Island and the cliff to Piha Beach as the tide goes out.
