Paradise, in 144 Parts

It’s been said that the Bay of Islands is home to some of the bluest skies in the world. Located between Cape Brett and the Purerua Peninsula on New Zealand’s North Island, this group of 144 islands is truly a sight to behold.

History buffs will want to visit Waitangi, the site of New Zealand’s first permanent British settlement and learn more about the birthplace of the Treaty of Waitangi—an important document signed between the British and the Māori people. If you’re there are the right time, you might just see a live kapahake performance.

Nature lovers will find lots to see in the Bay of Islands, too. One of the most popular fishing destinations in the country, hop aboard a daily cruise, charter a yacht, or hire a sea kayak, and view marine life including penguins, dolphins, marlin, and gannets. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a tandem skydiving excursion or for a more relaxing pace, tee off at one of the world-class golf courses. The northland region of New Zealand is also famous for its waterfalls, and both Rainbow Falls and Haruru Falls are easily accessible with a quick hike or drive.
