We were staying in some apartments a few minutes walk from the Harbour. This is the jumping off spot for a boat trip to the Bay of Islands. Everything is an easy to walk around and you can enjoy the cafes and sights

Similar in many ways to our local Port Fairy. Very quiet at this time of year but most cafes were operating. Many motels were closed. Crazy in the summer

You can walk into Paihia along a coastal track from Opua. We did this, not too hard and there was a good choice to choose from in Paihia for lunch. Would like to have stayed much longer.

Here you can catch a boat or go for a meal in one of the restaurants. During winter it is very quiet here but I can imagine it beeing very busy in the summer. Nice place.

I didn't find this was worth the stop except to catch the ferry to Russell. I walked around it in under 5 minutes. I think I was just tired of being a tourist at this point.

A trip to the Bay of Islands must include Paihia sitting in the heart of the harbour. Easy to walk around and enjoy the cafes and sights. Sit by the wharf and watch the boats come and go, or take a trip on the harbour....More
