Sun, sand and sea breezes. The long peninsula north of Auckland offers summer delights as it extends close to the tropics. Rolling hills twist into lovely bays and quiet beaches. It’s easy to find a lonely stretch of sand here. Key destinations include Cape Reinga- where the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea mix and swirl (great for scenic flights), and the Bay of Islands is the key destination. Come for dolphin swims, day cruises out to the hole in the rock and deep sea fishing. Dive on the wreck of the Rainbow Warrior. Walk through ageless forests of Kauri trees as large as redwoods. Or get up early for a round of links at the beautiful Kauri Cliffs golf course.
