In  2018 during our North Island road trip

we visited the Ohope (southern) end of

The Bay of Plenty

Locals told me this was White Island.

In view of recent activity over there I was

just wondering if you could clarify that for me please.

I was only using a 250 mm lens and the island

appears much closer than the 50 km it is

from Whakatane or Optiki Beaches.

Happy New Year to you Betty and thank

you for visiting my site and introducing yours.

  1. My expert (Hubby!) tells me that the island in your photo is Moutohora Island also called Whale Island and it’s only about 9 km from shore. You cannot see White Island from the beach. Hope this helps!

    It’s so nice to see you at ‘My Corner of the World’!
