Travel Tips for Paihia

The scenic drives

by iandsmith

It really doesn't matter what direction you take, there are scenic drives everywhere and this one that heads out to Whangaruru North certainly has its moments
I would encourage enyone staying in the Bay of Islands to utilize your vehicle because the rewards are many.
On this scenic route out the back of Russell it winds through lush countryside for a time until you reach the ocean again and then it certainly rates up with the best of them.
For me the highlight was Elliot Bay. This idyllic setting of a sandy beach with small lines of swell drifting in from the sea (pic 1) is so romantic yet it is relatively remote so remains unexploited even to this day. As you come over the hill and first see the water (pic 5) it looks nice and just gets better from there.
Taupiri Bay was another lovely setting (pic 4) while in another spot the dramatic effects of the recent flood rains could be seen in the form of severe erosion (pic 3). While this type of landslip was visible throughout the Northland, it was never as dramatic as in this spot.

Hole in the Rock

by keeweechic

This is an amazing rock formation where your boat will attempt to go through the hole in the rock. It depends on the weather and sea condition, but the gap for the boat to pass through takes some skill in navigation.

Paihia: Heaven in the Bay of Islands

by darthmilmo

Against everyone's advice, I decided to use what little time I had in New Zealand to explore the North Island. It turned out to be a great choice! I used the time to my advantage and ended up visiting Auckland, Rotarua, Taupo, and Paihia. Heading north from Auckland, you arrive to the beautiful beach town of Paihia where the summers are endless. This paradise on earth served as the perfect way to finish my nine month trip. I got to relax for a week on the beach. The weather wasn't cooperating on me when I arrived though. I spent the first day indoors watching TV as the pouring rain engulf the town. I did manage to pre-book several activities that kept me busy for the rest of my stay in Paihia.
