Paihia

Paihia is a tourist town in the heart of the Bay of Islands in the Northland region of the North Island. It lies 23km south-east of Kerikeri with Waitangi immediately to its north and Russell on the opposite shore. Paihia is normally accessed by road from nearby Opua. Adjoining Paihia 3km to the north is Waitangi, the site of the historic treaty signed in 1840 between Maori and the British.

Paihia is a major tourist destination and well geared for providing accommodation, eateries and tours. From here, it is easy to explore the islands, coves, inlets and beaches of the Bay of Islands. more

The climate is sub-tropical making beach and water activities extremely pleasant and there are opportunities to swim with dolphins, dive the Rainbow Warrior, charter a boat, go big game fishing (snapper and kingfish), enjoy nature walks, explore kauri forests, go horse trekking, try sky diving or parasailing and take scenic flights. Popular excursions include trips to Cape Brett and the 'Hole in the Rock' on Piercy Island.

Accommodation in Paihia is plentiful and available for a wide range of budgets: backpackers, apartments, bed and breakfast accommodation, campgrounds, hotels, motels, lodges and self-catering accommodations.
