The best activities & attractions on offer at the Bay of Islands

There are so many things to do in the Bay of Islands. Fancy a dip? Then dive into our pristine waters with our huge range of fun water activities like sailing, kayaking and other water sports. When you’re ready to dry off, come ashore and take advantage of the many things to do on land like mountain biking or playing a round of golf. Or if you’re into more relaxing adventures, try one of our many spas and really pamper yourself.

Of course, no trip to the Bay of Islands would be complete without a day tour to our world famous attractions like the Hole in the Rock or one of our charming neighboring towns each with a rich history of its own just waiting to be explored. The Bay of Islands has an
abundance of activities, beautiful beaches and breathtaking views woven together with a unique, rich history.
