My little piece of paradise

Truman beach is a magical piece of NZ coastline that overlooks the wild Tasman Sea, 3km north of Punakaiki. It is a photogenic paradise featuring many unique rock formations and erosions, caves, waterfalls, fossils, stacks, soft sand, wildlife and sunsets.

The beach is accessed via the 1.5km long Truman track which begins in dense, pleasant sub-tropical forest including rata, matai, rimu and nikau palms. Native birds including tui, bellbirds, kereru and weka can be heard and often seen all the way along this track. Access to the beach is via a wooden staircase that can only be made during low tides, care must be taken to avoid being stranded by the returning tide.
