About the club


A slice of paradise, the Bay of Islands is an area of unspoilt coastline, dazzling views and quiet luxury, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. From sailing and yachting to snorkelling and fishing, water lovers will have plenty to do. On the islands themselves there are pretty, small towns, historic and cultural sites and nature walks through tropical forests to enjoy. Why not watch dolphins leap in the sparkling waters off New Zealand's North Island as you relax in your exclusive retreat.

Blissful beaches, outdoor adventures and picture perfect villages.

Things to do


On Kerikeri Island you can visit Rainbow Waterfalls or say hello to vibrant birdlife at the Parrot Place. Many of the islands have marked walking tracks through lush, subtropical rainforest. Stroll riverside or coastal paths and marvel at the huge Kauri trees. Or see the most incredible views of all by chartering a private flight.


Spend a day cruising on a boat around the islands, or sail on a tall ship and gaze out over the blue sea and island cliffs. Swim with the dolphins, or hire a sea kayak and paddle around the Bay. The clear waters of the Bay of Islands are also fantastic for snorkelling. And with one island as your base, you'll easily be able to arrange private fishing trips or charter a yacht as part of your luxury getaway.


Paddle a kayak to Paihia Island's Waitangi Treaty Grounds and one of New Zealand's culturally significant sites: the Treaty House where colonists and the Maori signed the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. Here you can also visit a carved Maori meeting house and the world's largest single-hulled canoe. Learn about Maori culture from your friendly guide and watch a cultural performance before going to see some of the first colonial buildings of New Zealand.

Browse art galleries in Kerikeri before visiting one of the many local wineries and vineyards.
