Paihia is in the beautiful Bay of Islands. There are many wonderful safe swimming golden beaches in the area for you to enjoy. The coastal views are beautiful and the waters are well known for great fishing. The Islands in the bay can be reached by charter boat, tourist ventures or water taxis. Dolphins are often in the harbour and the Dolphin adventures allow you to view and swim with these beautiful mammals in their natural environment. Most of the tours of this part of New Zealand, which has much of New Zealand's youthful history beginning here, run from Paihia.
Our home is 5 mins. walk to the town centre & all the tours. It is spacious and airy with wonderful views. We look out over the bay and across to Russell, another historic town with lots of wonderful local crafts available.
Waitangi, the site of the original treaty signing between the Maori people and the settling europeans is just to the north of Paihia
