Paihia - Accessible/Easy Access Accommodation & Activities

Paihia is the centre of Bay of Islands Tourism - the tourist centre on the wharf is where cruises depart for all parts of the Bay of Islands and the I-centre there is the best place to go for information. Pahia has good accessibility - it is all flat, there are mobility parks in the main street and at the wharf. Most of the cruises are accessible - if you aren't sure you can do it contact the companies - they are all happy to help.

Paihia is a major tourist destination and well geared for providing accommodation, eateries and tours. From here, it is easy to explore the islands, coves, inlets and beaches of the Bay of Islands. The Waitangi Treaty House and grounds are a less then 5 minute drive away.
