The island is accessible at low tide via a sandbar three hours either side of low tide. On 19 July it is at 11.50am. The island can be walked around and climbed up onto. There is a shipwreck, a shag colony and sandstone cliffs.
New Zealand Herald:
“The island glitters less than 500m away, but a sense of magic belies its proximity. We feel thrust into the turquoise water of the gulf, adrift on a giant raft.”
Then we will go to the nearby Omana Regional park.
