Surfers are a common sight, drawn to the favourable conditions of the sea while flying high above, paragliders are drawn to the equally favourable south-westerly winds surrounding the coastline. The Muriwai surf School is located just past the Sand Dunz Beach Cafe, and offers surfing tuition and the option to hire a wetsuit and a surfboard.
Close to the beach is the Muriwai Gannet Colony which is home to over a thousand pair of gannets who return to the area each year from Australia, between September and April. At the colony there is car park and a short walking trail that leads to a couple of viewing platforms that allows visitors close up views of the colony and rugged coastline.
Muriwai Beach also brings out the anglers, who set up under along the rocks to 'catch a bite', although it can be dangerous in many spots.
