The Area: Paihia and Bay of Islands
The quaint seaside town of Paihia is a popular place to base holidays and expeditions in and around the Bay of Islands. Travellers and locals alike take advantage of the golden shores and safe swimming beaches, as well as recreational activities both in and out of the ocean.
The Bay itself is made up of 144 unique islands, with each town boasting its own distinctive culture and vibe. Take a trip to the famous Cape Reinga or Haruru Falls, or embrace New Zealand’s history at Waitangi, the site where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840. Wander through Waipoua Kauri Forest and be amazed by the famous Tana Mahita, the largest known Kauri tree in the world. Enjoy a bite at one of the charming cafés in Paihia or nearby Russell or indulge in a spot of retail therapy at one of the many boutiques and gift shops. Those feeling a little more adventurous could swim with the dolphins, go fishing, or get the adrenaline pumping with speed boating, jet-skiing, parasailing, kayaking or one of the many other adventure sports.
