Whether you want time to relax by yourself and spend quality time unwinding with your loved ones the Bay of Islands is the place for you. Keep things simple and throw a picnic in a bag and enjoy one of our many walks both on the mainland or out in the islands. After taking your own small adventure book a massage in one of our many local spas and let yourself unwind while thinking about the vistas you saw our your walk.
Of course finish you day by unwinding with a glass of wine or a cold beer at The Duke of Marlborough for a taste of Russell history or on the deck at Alongside for a more modern take on the Bay of Islands
Being out on the water is how us Bay of Islands locals love to relax so grab a spot on a sailing boat, lie back and enjoy the quiet while an experienced skipper takes the helm to help you see the islands. Take a moment to dive right in and take a snorkel around our reefs or for the more active relaxers see the team at Paihia Dive for a stunning day below the surface.
