Wharariki Beach Caves

Wharariki Beach Caves

The multiple Wharariki Beach caves and arches in Pūponga are stunning. Some are in the cliffs, directly behind you when you stand in front of the Archway Islands. Others are at the west end of the beach in the large rocky outcrop near the walking track. If you stand in front of the Archway Islands and look to the far west of the beach, you’ll see another arch, similar to the one at Cape Farewell.

While you’re exploring the caves, arches and rock pools, keep an eye out for the occasional seal!
