What travelers to Bay of Islands are saying

Luo R. 5 Feb 2016

Blessed Bay Of Islands

Located at the very tip of the New Zealand’s North Island, the Bay of Islands is a natural playground that is ripe for exploring from any number of beautiful Bay of Islands hotels. It is one of the most memorable parts of this stunningly scenic country, with hundreds of islets, bays, and islands set against jewel-like, turquoise-blue water. You can indulge in fishing, boating, swimming, and wildlife watching amongst the 144 islands and bays that make up this popular destination.

Pahia is the centre of Bay of Islands activity, and offers much in the way of hotels, restaurants, and tours. The spectacular Haruru Falls is a splendid place to swim and relax. It’s a short distance to Waitangi, a country estate that showcases the Maori and British history of the area and the country.

Bay of Islands accommodation options range from small and cosy retreats to exclusive full service hotels. Book yours through HotelClub and receive exclusive club benefits. From the quiet, romantic town of Russell, take to the inviting seas on a charter boat or a group tour, and marvel at the penguins, albatross, dolphins and whales that call this corner of the ocean home.

It is a short, 45-minute flight from Auckland international Airport into the Keri Keri Airport, which is the main gateway. Bay of Islands is also easily accessible by road, via bus or rental car, a four-hour drive from Auckland. Discover what many New Zealanders already know, which is that the Bay of Islands is a special place where time slows down, and fortunate travellers relish all the wonders that nature has to offer.
