Lovely place to stay on the beach. Rooms are clean and quiet..except for the occasional rooster! The Shipwreck bar is great with live music on a Tuesday and Thursday. Only issue was I was not told about the ‘boost or booster button’ in the shower!...More

Kia Orana Stephanie, Steve here, sorry we don't have a sailing dingy here. We do have kayaks and SUP's though. There is a sailing club at Muri, I think you can rent them from there. :-)
