Checking out the Maori history on the way up. The Maoris used this rock that sits on the beach to watch for incoming enemies coming from inland and sea.

Today we've visited one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand - Lion rock. Special thanks to @alexandrbasan
For the great company and interesting stories!

Lion Rock is Pihaโ€™s most iconic landmark, its profile from all angles, known nation-wide. Lion Rock sits between Piha and North Piha beaches, offering people who climb it, spectacular views in all directions.

It is not possible to climb to the top after a rockfall made access too dangerous. At the end of the short, steep climb, there is a pou to a Te Kawerau a Maki ancestress, Ngati Tangiaro Taua, who loved this spot. There is a stone seat, so it is a good stop off place for a rest and to enjoy the views. There is interpretation on the way up about the rock and its former inhabitants.

To Te Kawerau, Lion Rock was known as Te Piha, the name now given to the beach. Te Piha referred to the patterns of waves separating and breaking on the front of the rock, as on the prow of a canoe.
