4. Ever wondered why some beaches in New Zealand have black sand?

Over time ancient volcanoes eroded, creating the iron-rich black sand we see today. In the North Island, most of the black sand came from volcanoes near Taranaki

The dark colour means the sand heats up fast, so keep those jandals on as you dash for the water! We'd love to hear your memories of visiting black sand beaches

According to Māori legend, there's a love story behind this picturesque mountain. Taranaki once lived with the other volcanoes of the North Island's Central Plateau - Tongariro, Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe. When he made romantic advances towards a beautiful mountain named Pihanga, Tongariro erupted in jealousy. Banished to the west, Taranaki was maddened with grief. When his peak is shrouded in mist and rain, he is said to be weeping for his lost love.​
