The Bay of Islands is known for its amazing scenery as well as the variety of activities you can participate in while you visit. The fishing is great, and you can eat what you catch or just fish for sport. There are great sailing and diving spots as well, with a good chance that you will see a dolphin or two along the way. For the more adventurous traveler, parasailing grants awesome views of the entire area.
