Area & Activities


We are incredibly fortunate to be able to enjoy and share the rarity and purity of all that North Island is. You only need to spend a few moments on our far-flung jewel to feel how its air, its sights, sounds and aromas inspire a holistic sense of well-being. At times, you might want nothing but to feel the fine, warm sand push through your toes. But for when you want to engage in new experiences and sensations, we offer a generous selection of activities for all ages and paces. Whether on land or water, by foot or mode of transport, there’s something that will call your name. And the best part is, you’ll never need to leave the island and its surrounding waters.

Longboards and Bodyboards

Whether it’s for you or your kids, we have boards to enjoy our warm waves with.

Buggies

Each villa has an electric buggy for your total convenience, allowing you to cruise effortlessly and (almost) silently along the island’s sandy tracks and reach West Beach Bar or Honeymoon Beach. Quiet and emission-free, the Island buggies are entirely in keeping with our philosophy of Island conservation.

Library

The Library is the custodian of the history of the island. As one of the only listed buildings found on the island when development first began, it was sensitively restored to showcase its original coral block walls and typical arched openings. Visual focus is drawn to the suspended anchor dating back to the 1800s, that was pulled out of the bay in front of the Library.

It is the hub of environmental activities on the island and serves as a base for resident conservationists and environmental volunteers.

The Boutique

Whether for yourself or to take home to a loved one, you’ll find our boutique is a treasure trove of bespoke beachwear, jewelry and gift-ware. A collection of curated pieces that capture the spirit of our barefoot luxury.

Sea Turtles

Our guests are welcome to join our conservationists on their daily morning turtle patrol, where they monitor and tag our precious neighbours. You could very well encounter an endangered Hawksbill or Green Turtle on one these patrols or be fortunate to see them nesting or hatching near your villa.

Explore the Island

It really is amazing how immersing yourself in the ocean, its wildlife, its cooling waters, its ebb and flow, takes your mind off everything else. The North Island Activities Centre is housed in a historic coral building and it’s here that you’ll have access to a plethora of water-based activities and equipment.
