The wairua (spirit) is strong in this one. Two seas clash on the outer rim while giant forest guardians look over within.

The Kai Iwi lakes are well worth a visit, three clear turquoise coloured lakes surrounded by white beaches and pine forest. In this area you can go swimming, fishing, walking and mountain biking. There is also access to the Tasman Sea.

If you are game to drive along 90mile beach you need to be a bit careful, only do it 2 hours after high tide and drive as close to the water as possible so you don’t get stuck in the soft sand. Lots of cars do get stuck, flooded and destroyed. Emergency services are far, far away, it is for this reason that if you are driving a rental car you will not be insured. If you are not keen to drive yourself, catch a tour bus.

    Save money and have fun holidaying in this very special bit of Aotearoa. Historically and ecologically significant, and situated smack bang in the middle of the Bay of Islands, which is a jolly lovely place indeed.
