About Bay of Islands
With more than 144 islands to explore, the Bay of Islands is a favourite aquatic playground for holidaymakers and yachties from around the world. The secluded bays and sandy beaches of the mainland and many of the islands are open to the public; their warm waters, lush vegetation and the incredible scenery offer plenty of opportunity for fun, adventure and relaxation. Marine life is abundant in the area, with dolphins regularly spotted and sometimes whales and penguins seen. The Bay of Islands also offers excellent fishing, with plentiful snapper, and beds of plump scallops await divers in crystal-clear depths.
