  • Beautiful and clean with lots of public facilities )seating toilets etc), Worth going at dawn with the camera as it is breathtaking, There are also two lookouts to climb. 
  • Very cool place, you feel as so often in NZ as you were where quite different. Small port with many possibilities. Beautiful area - alone already easy to the sit down and relax it is worthwhile!

  • This is such a peaceful place that you could easily while away days in the Bay of Islands and base yourself here. Great shops close by and all the facilities you need.
