Screen Shot 2014-12-15 at 10.17.52 AM

The finest selection of property in the Bay of Islands is now on display in ASB Bank Paihia with Luxury Real Estate featuring property both in the window and inside the bank. Given the quality of property, the display is eye-catching.

Paihia is a hub for visitors to the Bay of Islands with ample accommodation, tours and attractions within easy reach. Boats depart the wharf to see the Bay, including the Hole in The Rock and Dolphin Discovery tours.

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.

State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series – Bay of Islands Classic
Saturday 22nd November 2014     11am – 4.00pm
Main Event Site:
Paihia Beach, Paihia, Bay of Islands

Move over dolphins, it’s that time of year when swimmers take to the water for the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series – Bay of Islands Classic.

This fabulous event encourages keen swimmers of all ages and abilities to participate in an ocean swim.

  • For those with the aquatic touch, there is the ‘I’m Going Long’ – a 3.3km swim across from Russell to Paihia.
  • If you just want to test the water, the ‘Give it a Go’ is a 300m swim taking place off Paihia Beach.
  • The younger swimmers seem to love the ‘State Ocean Kids’ – a swim for children aged between 6-10 years old. The kids enjoy a fun 30min safety activity session followed by a 200m shallow water swim along Paihia beach, lined with Surf Life Saving NZ guards.

Pack the sunscreen, beach towels, goggles and cap and experience the superb waterways of the Bay of Islands.   As with any trip to the Bay of Islands, plan an extra few days – you’ll want to stay longer.

Special thanks to the Race organisers and photos: Simon Watts.

Bay of Islands airport – the sky’s the limit


, ,

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 10.23.31 AMExciting plans have been announced for the Bay of Islands airport.

The proposed venture will see a switch to the 50-seat Bombardier Dash 8 Q300 and the phasing out of flights with the 19-seat Beechcraft 1900D aircraft by February. The larger aircraft will boost the capacity of 60,000 passengers a year by 20 per cent.*

Such multimillion-dollar investment in infrastructure offers a great boost for tourism and local residents.

Flying into Auckland and transferring to the tiny plane for the final leg home may soon just be a memory, albeit a really nice one.
There is something special about flying over the Bay of Islands and landing amid the farmland of Kerikeri. Now, even more people will share that experience and the friendly welcome to this fabulous region.
