There are an endless supply of perfect picnic spots scattering the picturesque Rotoroa Island. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Just around the corner is the Men's Bay picnic spot. There are toilets and a beautiful swimming beach here, and you might even spot some local dotterel while you eat.
Home Bay is one of two picnic spots on Rotoroa Island that has electric BBQs you're welcome to use. It's also very close to the information centre if you need any advice on where to go next.
