In this section, you’ll find out about services at Piha, most provided as part of community enterprises.
While it’s only a small village, everything you really need for the good life is here. If you want town stuff, there’s a town over the hill, providing all the standard urban amenities. At Piha, you swap that for what nature can offer – clean air, the ocean, the bush – and a life in harmony with the natural world.
There is no reticulated sewerage and no town water supply. When it comes to an emergency, Piha has to provide for itself, till help can get here from over the hill. So we’re a self-reliant lot who have learned to do-it-for ourselves.
