T
he Cavalli Islands are just north of the Bay of Islands a few kilometres off the coast. They are a group of Islands that run along the east coast of Northland facing out to the Pacific Ocean.
The western side of the islands are sheltered and yachts often seek shelter here in foul weather.
Cavalli Islands
The western side of the islands descend down to sandy beaches but on the east side as you can see from the painting the coastline is rugged from being continually pounded by the wind and surf of the Pacific Ocean
On the main island there is an old Maori Pa which can be seen on the bottom right.
There is a walk along the length of the island which is not too difficult but can be brisk with the sea wind in your face. If you get a chance to visit the island do so as it is an experience that you will never forget.
