The Bay of Islands. The simplicity of the name seems to convey that the
place is the home simple and pure nature. This is the site where the
Europeans settled in Europe for the first time. About 150 dispersed islands
off the North Island, the Bay of Islands are the home of marvellous natural
beauty. Sheltered waters off the Bay of Islands offer some of the finest
boating and fishing to be found in New Zealand. Delicious seafood is an
integral part of the menu of the local restaurants.
Plenty of islands and secluded bays make the Bay of Islands the finest
maritime park in New Zealand. Those who are fond of marine life have great
time in the bay of islands which have abundance of creatures like the big
marlin, whales, penguins, dolphins, gannets and many other species. Fine
examples of Maori culture can also be seen in the bay of islands. Sailing
yachts, sport fishermen, golfers and marine enthusiasts, all assemble in the
pristne environs of the bay to have some gala time. Whether you are
romantic, adventurous or lover of secluded holidays, the Bay of islands
caters to all your wishes.
