Topic: Physical Environment

Topic type:

Te Arai's physical environment has been formed by many centuries of exposure to the winds and swells of the Pacific Ocean. Unlike the majority of beaches in the Auckland region Te Arai is not sheltered by the Barrier Islands. It is a high-energy regime characterised by its long stretch of sandy beach and its moving dunes.
