Ten cedar holiday units located in the center of Paihia, just 200 meters stroll to the many cafés, restaurants, beach, shops and the main Paihia wharf.<br/>Each unit is self contained and nice and modern. Lovely bathrooms, and cooking facilities.<br/>Good views from its location up on the hill.<br/>Prices are very reasonable

Saltwater Lodge, and others....: Backpacker Central - Paihia.

Paihia is the main place for backpackers in the Bay of Islands. There are at least five big backpackers including a YHA one. I stayed at Saltwater Lodge in 2004, which was excellent. In 2006 I stayed at the Peppertree Lodge, also in the backpacker area. See my Paihia page for more information about these two hostels.<br/>There are motels out of the backpacker area and resorts in the Bay of Islands.

Matauri Bay Camp: Matauri Bay

Matauri Bay has an all year round Camping Ground that has everything you'll need to have a great holiday. Beautiful views from right on the beach, awesome walking tracks around the rocks, the Rainbow Warrior Memorial, and of course, all the water activities you can imagine. Matauri Bay Holiday Park have Caravans with Awnings, Power Sites, and Tent Sites.

Family run business, owned and operated by a local maori family trust. Lots of young people looking for fun in the sun. Great fishing and shell fish harvesting.
