The surrounding area, including Warkworth, Matakana, Leigh and several idyllic east coast beach coves, boasts a range of local attractions and activities.
Matakana is famous for its laid back vineyards and local produce, while Warkworth has a range of restaurants and cafes when you need a break from the beach side barbeques.
For the more adventurous, there’s the Goat Island Marine Reserve for up close snorkeling experiences with Snapper, Kawhai, John Dory or Kingfish. Goat Island’s fish are just for looking at, but if it gets your taste buds fizzing, why not take a fishing charter from Sandspit Wharf out into Kawau Bay and try your luck catching some for dinner.
And when all these activities have left you in need of some relaxation time, there are plenty of beaches and coves where you can find a spot of your own to just pass away the hours reading or snoozing. Bliss!
