Our Locations > Islands > Mount MaunganuiMotiti Island


A small island 10km off the Bay of Plenty coast with a rich, but divided history.

The edges of Motiti Island are lined with pōhutukawa, clinging to rocky cliffs. Its lush, green topography is gently undulating. Motiti is privately owned with locals growing produce such as avocados. There are no shops on Motiti. Food is either grown on the island, or sent over on the 10-minute flight from Tauranga
