With a population of about 1770, Paihia peaks in the summer season as visitors flock to enjoy the sunshine and warm waters. The beachfront strip, coastal walking tracks and wharf area can be a hive of activity. Annual events such as the Food and Wine Festival, various music festivals and Ocean Swim put the focus on Paihia. In fact the local community organization is called Focus Paihia and they have some great initiatives in the pipeline including the proposed Bike Park.

From week to week there are food markets on the Paihia green and craft markets welcome visiting cruise ships to the bay. Paihia has restaurants, cafes, shops and services. The wharf is a great spot to soak in the atmosphere and watch the boats come and go.  It is where the ferries depart to glide across to Russell.
