Sunbeam Sanctuary, Great Barrier Island, New Zealand

Sunbeam Sanctuary is set on a large native bush block over the road from Crystal Bay, Okupu. (10 min walk). Each facility is in its own setting amongst native bush and well tended vegetable gardens. Ample parking available in each area.

We have our own stream with swimming holes and you can even pan for gold. We are pet friendly, dogs welcome. The view from top of the property is worth the walk.

The Okupu Wharf is a pleasant 15 minute walk away. We are 1 20 minute drive from Claris airfield/shops and a further 20 minutes to Tryphena village and wharf.
