Island Bay is one of Wellington's most well-known and easily accessed bays. With a small island jutting out in the middle, divers, swimmers and small boats, this lovely bay is ideal for all ages. It has inspired artwork by well-known New Zealand artist Rita Angus, and continues to inspire art students from the art school in nearby Erskine College. From the sea wall, visitors can watch the tidal flow between the island and the shore on an outgoing tide, the busy fishing boats coming and going, divers, rock hoppers and beachcombers exploring.
