Magic place to be. Beautiful walks and sandy beaches. We swim and fish a lot around this island. Amazing Anchorage. Always so calm minus the swells that some in otherwise so clam and bay is always full. So get in early.
I love this island! If you have never been before, it’s a must see Auckland attraction! Make sure to pack a lunch and some sunblock!
Beautiful day. Amazing to see the native flora & fauna! Loved our guide and even had a send off from dolphins. Good for many fitness levels.
One of the best places I've ever been. Amazing birds, including the North Island Kokako, Little Spotted Kiwi or the Stitch bird. Also, plenty of native flora and great landscapes. A great example of how nature with a little bit of management can recover degradantes areas. For a full experience, I recommend staying overnight (it is the only way to see the Little Spotted Kiwi).
What Auckland must have been like before development. A must do for all visitors. Easy walking and prolific bird life. Great beach to relax and cool off. Cafe pretty good too.
