Moturiki Island is just a short 500m walk from the main hustle and bustle of Mount Maunganui in Tauranga. When you have completed your walk around, or up and over Mount Maunganui you can take a stroll along the beach to your next challenge. After a slice of chocolate cake and a hot flat white from one of the half dozen excellent Mount cafes you can walk the ten minutes along the mount beach to Moturiki island. Moturiki Island is only 350 Mt long then it drops into the splendid Bay of Plenty. On one of the Mount fantastic days, which there is no shortage of, you will see a number of local fisherman at their favourite spot trying to catch their dinner. Many years ago there was a Marine land here but the ocean decided to take back the inhabitants and return them to the sea. The Island is also a great location to take a photo of the 231 Mt, Mt Maunganui.
