The Millennium Cup: 5 days sailing in the Bay of Islands

The Millennium Cup: 5 days sailing in the Bay of Islands

2 of 5 2/5

Roberton Island

A short half an hour sail away and the stunning Roberton Island looms. A beautifully sheltered anchorage, Roberton Island boasts two tidal lagoons with an underwater trail perfect for snorkeling just a stone’s throw away from the sea.

Easy access to shore and the silkiest of white-sand make this one of the best picnic spots and ideal for a beach barbecue.

A short half hour walk from the beach is rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of the Bay from a jutting lookout nestled atop the island.

Wind down sampling critically acclaimed wines from local vineyard, Omata Estate, to the sound of birdsong from the many native birds that inhabit the island. Nature-lovers will be enthralled by the diverse range of fauna that comes out as the sun goes down – head ashore with the crew for an opportunity to see the island come alive at night.

The island is a top pick amongst captains and can only be accessed by boat, helicopter or skilled kayaker leaving it completely unspoiled.
