Among that it has some interesting rock formations into when Auckland’s Volcanic past with as you walk north wise of the beach you can see un sandy buried the frozen lava formations layering like a molten Scoria rock toffee formation… also in the distance is the Rangitoto Island once of Auckland’s Volcanic past in which it lies dormant for a while in the Hauraki Gulf. Rangitoto Island name means Bloody Sky, as it was formed over the period of six thousand years that gate crashed Motutapu Island….
