The recently renovated Penneshaw Hotel and Sorrento's Restaurant offer quality meals with ocean views, or after a hard days touring if you don't feel like cooking or eating out, there are several take away options including a pizza bar and fish and chips.
Pack a picnic and stop at Chapman River on your way back from Cape Willoughby Lighthouse, sample wines and local produce at Sunset and Dudley Wineries or fish for the famed KI King George Whiting on the jetty.

To ensure your safety, when planning day trips make sure you allow enough time to return home before dusk, as this when many of the Island's wildlife species become active
