About the area

Located just two minutes from historic Russell, Tapeka Point is the perfect base for exploring and enjoying the Bay of Islands by land or water.

There is a beautiful white sandy beach safe for swimming and a second rocky beach for fishing and diving. A boat-ramp, deep-water boat mooring, swimming pontoon, ski-lane, and grassy reserve make it an idyllic location for a relaxing or active break.
Description

A grassy track gives access to views from a pa site over the Bay of Islands from Du Fresne Place and carpark.

If you are in Paihia, I really recommend you taking the ferry to Russell. The ferry costs little money! Russell is a much nicer place and has much better beaches. And from Russell you can go to the Tapeka Point which is a great lookout with 360 degree views. Highly recommended!!
