The Ocean

The Landing has six private beaches ideal for swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkelling or relaxing on the golden sand as your children play in the safe, quiet waters of the bay. Our skippered private vessel Iti Rangi is available for you to cruise the coves of the peninsula to fish and encounter seabirds and other marine life. Or if you like to chase big game, the luxury sport-fishing vessel Ata Rangi can be taken out for the day or overnight for some of the best marlin, tuna fishing in the world. The Bay of Islands also offers incredible scuba diving, and wreck diving, including the famous Rainbow Warrior and HMNZS Canterbury, parasailing, and hole-in-the-rock cruises.

The Landscape

The Landing sits within 1000 acres of native bush, wetland bird sanctuary and farmland, which you have full access to roam through on a network of tracks. Rise early for a hike or bike ride as the sun rises, rug up for a late-night kiwi spotting walk with one of our guides, or take a driving tour of sites of interest. In the wider area, head out on a horse trek across beach or mountains with one of the local stables, visit glowworm caves in ancient rainforest or play golf at one of the world’s most spectacular courses, including the PGA tournament-quality Carrington course on the Karikari Peninsula and the internationally renowned Kauri Cliffs course.
