5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Great picnic spot in peace and tranquility. Oysters available for the picking on the shoreline, remember to pack something to shuck them.

“Lovely and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

Well worth a visit. The walk around the island is not arduous, and takes you through some nice bush. At one stage we were followed closely by a fantail flitting around us. Summer time would be even better with the sea right there to take a swim or simply picnic.

“So very quiet and peaceful-serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Totally the place to go to relax in peaceful surroundings. No animals - just nature at its best. Removed from the rest of the planet set out on an isthmus amongst mother nature.

“kiwi and other wildlife on the doorstep”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

this is an outstanding conservation project on a small island in the Kerikeri area linked by a causeway - the site has excellent walks and can accommodation tents and travelling vans if you wish to stay and stand a chance of seeing kiwi at night
