A short 8km boat ride across Kawau Bay from Sandspit, Warkworth will transport you to the beautiful Kawau Island New Zealand. There are ferries and water taxis that leave from Sandspit daily, or take your own boat out for a spin. The island has three harbours: Bon Accord Harbour, North Cove, and South Cove. Most residents rely on direct waterfront access and have private wharves for entrance to their homes. Other residents choose to live on their boats anchored in one of the harbours.
