Snapper

Leigh, one hour’s drive north of Auckland city, is NZ’s Snapper Capital. At the marine reserve at Goat Island you can see abundant marine life including large snapper, just off the beach, by snorkelling, diving or the glass bottom boat. Learn more about the marine life and reserve at the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre and visit the Ti Point Reptile Park which caters to all ages. See activities.

A range of food that includes fresh, delicious snapper can be enjoyed at the Sawmill Cafe, Leigh Bar or Leigh Eats. Stay longer in one of the accommodations – camping, bed and breakfast or self-contained.

Beautiful coastal, bush and farm walks. Close to Tawharanui, Scandretts, Mahurangi and Pakiri Regional Parks. Beaches include surf at Pakiri and Omaha and sheltered swimming at Matheson Bay.

Check out the wildlife page to see more about birds, whales, dolphins and other marine life. Kayaking and fishing are other local options.
