A child found dead at Auckland's Piha Beach did not not drown but died in an accident, police say.

The child was reported missing on Saturday afternoon but was found dead at the north end of the beach shortly afterwards by search teams.

Police overnight confirmed the death was not a drowning, but said it was the result of a "tragic accident".

The death has been referred to the coroner and police are notifying the next of kin.
