The Bay of Islands is renowned for its white sand beaches and sheltered bays, from the popular Paihia Town Beach, to Long Beach (Oneroa Bay) in Russell. From Marina Cove it’s an easy 5 minute walk to English Bay or Lemons Bay for safe swimming and a beach away from the crowds. If you fancy travelling further afield, you could take the Explore Ferry to Urupukapuka, or head North to Matauri Bay.


Treat yourself to a relaxing spa, facial or beauty treatment, or healing massage.
