Location & Activities

Awana Escape is located on the eastern side of Great Barrier Island, the 4th largest island in New Zealand situated 90 km to the north-east of central Auckland in the outer Hauraki Gulf. The property is ocean front, facing east and has spectacular views of sun and moon rise. The location is very isolated, and surrounded by sounds of native birds, waves and wind. With no nearby neighbours, you will really be at one with nature.

Awana Escape is very close to Harataonga Bay, the setting for the BBC One reality show, Castaway, which was filmed there for three months.

Activities you can partake in include Swimming, Diving, Surfing, Kayaking, Tramping, Hot Pools and much more.
