Subtropical heaven in the Bay of Islands!

The Bay of Islands is a top New Zealand destination, known for its stunning coastal scenery and wildlife; its warm waters, sandy beaches and many islands.

There is wide range of activities on offer in the region, something to suit every taste! One of the best ways to experience the bay is by getting out on the water and among the islands. Sailing, cruising and fishing rank high on the list, not to mention kayak and jetski tours.
But don’t forget that the Bay viewed from above is just as exquisite; take a helicopter ride, a scenic flight or a skydive over the Bay.

There are some great land-based activities too, both cultural and adrenalin-fuelled along with some great walks and beautiful beaches to while away sunny days.

You mustn’t leave the area without exploring Northland’s wine trail and enjoying the local food markets.

The Bay of Islands is the ideal base from which to explore the rest of Northland: south to Tutukaka and the Poor Knights marine reserve; west to the rugged coast and the serene beauty of the Hokianga Harbour; north to Doubtless Bay, Ninety Mile Beach and Cape Reinga.

Tours to these all areas can be booked right here online. If you can’t find the activity or accommodation that suits you, just email the team and we’ll help you out with suggestions.
