Enjoy the pleasurable walk on Leisure Island (Moturiki)
Looking for a short, exciting walk somewhere unique? Leisure Island may be just the walk you are looking for.
Moturiki Island, also known as Leisure Island, has a beautiful walk and plenty to offer.
Accessed from a man-made land bridge, off of Mount Maunganui’s Main Beach, this island is well known for its blow hole on the far end of the island, views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and its place for fishing.
This short walk from Mount Main, taking 5-10 minutes to reach the blowhole, is widely accessed by people all over. Simply follow the well-marked track on Leisure Island, whom is easily walked. You will find yourself reaching rocks on the end of the path, upon which you can scramble over to enjoy the best vantage point.
Here you will see the blowhole, Pacific Ocean and views on either side of both Mount Maunganui Beach, Mauao and the coastline stretching towards Papamoa. A wonderful place to bring the kids along for a walk, as they can enjoy the warm rock pools and enjoy the adventure.
