Almost a compulsory spot to visit. This lovely island is private at the eastern and western ends, but the middle is Department of Conservation owned and open to the public. The lagoon on the north sode of the isthmus has an underwater guided trail. A track go up to the historic pa site at the western end with stunning views of the islands and bay.
