Waikutakuta / Robin Hood Bay has had its name updated as a Treaty of Waitangi Settlement agreement
The Bay is often popular in the summer time due to its close proximity to Blenheim.
This bay is not a desirable place to anchor in, as the swell breaks halfway up the bay and the wind tends to come through.
The main land use around Robin Hood Bay is for farming.
In the winter it can be bitterly cold and can also get quite windy over the summer time.
