Paihia

Parks Nature Adventure
The main tourist town in the Bay of Islands area, Paihia gives visitors a good range of accommodations, a convenient town center, long sandy beaches, and interesting architecture. Useful as a jumping off point for exploring the diversity of water-based activities on offer--from cruises to kayaks to dolphin-watching trips--Paihia's active wharf serves as the point of departure for many experiences across the historically important and culturally rich Bay of Islands. Make your own Paihia vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our New Zealand tour planner.

Where to stay in Paihia

As a welcoming tourist town, Paihia offers a range of accommodations suitable for visitors with a diverse set of criteria. Boutique hotels and self-catered apartments dot along the coast, some offering excellent views of the bay on request. While most lodgings are located in the town center, farther out you can find campsites and resorts that, because of the settlement's modest size, still put you within walking distance or a short car journey of the wharf and town center.
