Located just off the east coast of The Coromandel, Slipper Island is one of New Zealand's few privately-owned islands that welcomes visitors. Guests are offered accommodation in Chalets and Bandas on the water's edge with beautiful white sandy beaches a stone's throw away. Or camp in high style in a two-room glamping tent at Home Bay.
You can transfer to Slipper by boat, its only a few minutes by water taxi from Tairua or Pauanui and by helicopter or light aircraft, just 30 minutes' flight from Auckland.
While the island runs off the grid using both rain water and solar power - encouraging an awareness of the environment around you – the accommodations are modern and well-appointed with good cell phone reception.
