Bay of Island & beyond...
There is so much to see and do in Northland. The Bay of Islands is the perfect central base for you to explore the rest of the region: west to the Hokianga, north to the Cape and south towards the Tutukaka Coast.
In this section you can find some information about the things to look out for in the wider region. 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!
Visit the rugged west coast and enjoy the tranquility 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.
