FROM THE FARM (OR THE SEA) TO THE FORK

We believe in living sustainably and with a connection to the land. When you eat with us you’ll eat local produce from farms on the island (including our own farm) and the waters around us.

Nourishment for the belly, nourishment for the soul.

"Never have we felt more at home in a marina than Kerrera. First class welcome, great facilities and The Waypoint is just brimming with good cheer."

WE LOVE A GOOD PARTY

The bit you’ve all been waiting for. Great food and drink, incredible location, fascinating people, heaps of laughter and plans turning to chaos.

    Comfy walking shoes, a map or access to the visitor guides on our website, and a bag for all the snacks and goodies you pick up along the way! Check the weather forecast, but as the weather can change quickly in this part of the world we always suggest a raincoat and suncream in the summer.
