Northland’s ultimate island destination. Otehei Bay, situated on the gorgeous Urupukapuka Island, is a beautifully unique destination that you must see for yourself. The rich history of Otehei Bay dates back to pre-European times when Maori lived on the island. It was also a destination for the rich and famous, hosting the Zane Grey fishing competitions. Nowadays, Otehei Bay is an idyllic destination for all to enjoy. The island is also the base for a lot of conservation work – thanks to the help of Project Island Song and DOC – that ensures the successful release of native bird life back into their surroundings. It’s unbelievable that this island paradise is only a 40min Explore ferry ride from Paihia or Russell.
