Attractions - Hauraki Gulf

the Mercury Islands

The Mercs, situated on the Eastern side of Coromandel, but within Charterlink's charter area,  consist of 6 islands that are nature reserves and Great Mercury Island which is privately owned by the Fay/Richwhite families. Access is restricted on all the islands, but beach access is granted on Great Mercury, which has a very snug anchorage called Mercury Cove. Peach Grove Bay on the south side has a tree-lined lagoon inhabited by thousands of shags.... also well worth a visit.
