Motiti Island Right in Bay of Plenty is a fairly exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the south with some shelter here from east winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. There is no beach break as well as a right hand reef break. Best around high tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Sharks may be a hazard at this break.
