Haven't been there for a while, but I have fond memories of great days spent on the beaches there. Good safe beaches.

Beautiful island. The walking tracks were a bit disappointing. They are almost impossible to follow from maps as there are so many tracks going in all directions and not many signs. The forest cover is low so you cant really get lost however. You have to kind of guess which way to go. The best part was seeing the saddlebacks (rare bird). If I didnt see them I would probably have given it 3/5.
The beach is really nice but its a long way to travel to go to a beach, unless you have your own boat to get there. The ferry timings dont really give you enough time to really explore the island without feeling rushed.
I would recommend this island, however Rotoroa Island (a bit further) is much nicer and you can spend longer there if travelling by ferry.

Just an island in the beautiful Waitemata Harbour. Swim, play, picnic and relax in the peace and quiet away from the city - what more could you want
