Kawatea — Okains Bay (Okeina)
Situated in a quiet bay/headland and on an offshore island two kilometres southeast of Okains Bay is the Pā Bay — Pā Island settlement area. This combined site contains two pā, two villages and a garden and is thought to have been occupied over a long period with the main occupation period being during the 1820s.
The raiding expeditions of Te Rauparaha in 1830 marked the end of occupation of this extensive complex.
