The Bay of Islands is a popular holiday destination located in the beautiful Northland region. With 144 islands and bays, the Bay of Islands maritime park is one of New Zealand's best. Explore a bounty of marine life such as whales, penguins and dolphins in the Bay of Islands. We see dolphins all the time in the Bay of Islands! If you're lucky, they'll let you swim with them on approved tours. A top sailing destination - the Bay of Islands offers charted day trips with lunch included or you can hire a boat for a few days and navigate the beautiful anchorages at leisure. Waewaetorea Bay is an idyllic Bay of Islands anchorage where many a sailing trip pauses for lunch, a kayak and some snorkelling.
There is so much more to see and do in Northland. The Bay of Islands is the perfect central base for you to explore the rest of the region: the Twin Coast Highway takes you to Matauri and Te Ngaere Bays - great for surfing and sun and just a short drive from the Bay of Islands. Visit the rugged west coast and enjoy the tranquillity of the harbour settlements in the Hokianga. Explore the surf beaches along the Twin Discovery Highway and the volcanic splendour of the Whangaroa Harbour. Enjoy the white sandy beaches and opportunities for kite surfing in the Doubtless Bay region. Take the trip up the Aupouri Peninsula to see the meeting of the Pacific and Tasman Oceans at the Top of the North at Cape Reinga. A RaD rental car hire is competitively priced, which will make your trips around the region even more enjoyable.
Obviously, we're biased - we love the Bay of Islands. But that's not to say that we don't cherish trips to some of the stunning beaches and harbours scattered around Northland's coast. In fact, that's partly why we love it here!
