Xena Warrior Princess

Locations - Bethells Beach

Bethells Beach looking South
Bethells Beach is dramatic black sand beach at the mouth of the Waitakere River and one that has been used on many occasions in both Xena and Hercules. The headland shown to the left of the picture should be especially familar since it is featured in the Xena openning titles. This beach is also the location for Xena's crucifixion in Destiny and for the chariot race against Callisto in The Return of Callisto.
Bethells Beach looking North
This view of Bethells Beach is also used frequently, sometimes with a citadel city painted in to the right of the large bluff.
