Beehive Island is a little island to the south west of Kawau Island. It looks like it could be tropical with the white sand surrounding it at high tide.
It has many stunning views and moods depending on the time of day.
At high tide you don't see the reef below it, at low tide there is a reasonable shelf exposed.
Bee hive island is a neat place to stop by and explore. Boat access, Jet ski, kayak is best from the north side.
