  • Swimming: While the waters at Karekare Beach may be a bit rougher than other beaches in the area, it's still perfect for cooling off on a hot day. Be cautious when swimming as there can be strong riptides.
  • Beachcombing: The unique black sand and rocky shoreline make for excellent beachcombing opportunities. You might find interesting shells, rocks or even pieces of driftwood.
