Trade busy city streets for endless verdant valleys during this 24 hour escape to Pohatu Bay.

Spend the afternoon lapping up the secluded swimming beach just outside your door or explore the surrounding landscape. As evening strikes in season, set off on an exciting penguin tour, walking around the colony monitoring nesting sites and ensuring that the Little Penguins are doing well. You'll be able to see these adorable creatures up close as you learn about their behaviours and how conservation efforts have saved the Flea Bay colony from extinction. At night, gaze up at the the starry night sky unaffected by light pollution before a restful nights sleep.

Wake up to the soothing sounds of birdsong, sheep and the sea ready for another wonder-filled day. If you're feeling up to it, enjoy a heavy discount on a magical sea kayaking adventure. Paddle around Pohatu Marine Reserve marvelling at surreal towering volcanic cliffs, rock stacks, reefs and deep sea caves, and encounter a host of wildlife.
