Kawau Island, Hauraki Gulf Islands

Bostaquet Bay

Hauraki Gulf Islands Bays

Bostaquet Bay on the Southern end of Kawau Bay is very picturesque and is close to Flat Rock for great fishing.

On a North Easterly and when there is not too much activity on the water, this is a lovely spot to anchor for the night.

**History ** Bostaquet Bay, formerly known as Bosanquet Bay, was said to be the site of a cannibalistic feast, when Maori tribes from the mainland attacked the fierce Kawau tribes (probably Ngatitai and Ngatiwai), ending their control of the island, and their lives, presumably. *
