Imagine turquoise waters, golden beaches, 144 stunning islands, dolphins, whales and a year-round warm weather. Those are just some of the things that make the Bay of Islands the country’s premier subtropical paradise. Besides the stunning natural sceneries, the Bay of Islands is also an important historical site. The town of Russell was the first permanent European settlement in New Zealand (also the country’s first capital). The Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand’s founding document, was also signed here in 1840. The Bay of Islands offers an endless choice of activities: from parasailing, snorkeling, surfing to swimming with wild dolphins. The only problem is choosing what you want to do. Since this is a photo diary, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. For more information about the Bay of Islands, please visit New Zealand’s tourism website.
