The Bay of Islands

With 144 islands, hundreds of secluded inlets, clear blue waters and a sub-tropical climate the Bay of Islands is often seen as New Zealand's holiday paradise.

Add to that the historic nature of the region - it's where the modern nation of New Zealand was born - and the Bay of Islands has something for everyone.

Highlights include:

  • Visit the historic towns of Russell and Kerikeri
  • Explore the islands on a one-day yacht trip
  • Walk the coastal paths and discover hidden coves
