The Bay of Islands has long been a meeting place of people and cultures. The teal and turquoise waters, the caramel beaches and the 144 emerald green islands which give this marine playground its name all provide a stunning visual backdrop against which visitors and residents alike gather to relax, explore and have fun.

The area is rich in history and heritage; this was where Māori and Europeans first met and mingled hundreds of years ago. Now it’s a cultural canvas, offering a myriad of insights into the way these two peoples, along with many others since, have melded to form today’s Aotearoa New Zealand.

Come and explore it all from the beautiful Bay of Islands Marina – New Zealand’s first port of call!
