Our Location

Alongside sits over the water in Paihia, the Bay of Islands. We are incredibly biased as we live, work and play here but we think it's a slice of paradise.

Beautifully located over the water in the heart of Paihia, with spectacular views of the Bay of Island's and daily wharf activity Alongside is open 7 days a week for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Seize a couch and relax back while sipping on a drink on our decks. From Paihia it's so simple to explore the Bay of Islands anyway you please. From air, road or sea there are plenty of spots to relax on a white sand beach, explore lush native forests or indulge the history buff that hides in all of us.

Just down the road is Waitangi, the Birth Place of our Nation and New Zealand's most significant historic site. A short ferry ride away is the historic town of Russell perfect for exploring by foot. We can't forget the islands themselves of the multitude of native birds (many being reintroduced after a massive effort to rid all the islands of predators) and our world famous marine mammals. With subtropical waters it's the perfect place in New Zealand to swim with dolphins, scuba dive our subtropical reefs or historic wrecks or take a kayak to explore our many sea caves. 

Our team here at Alongside loves the team at Bay of Islands Information for sharing tips and tricks for making the most our of your trip to the Bay of Islands so check in with Katie and Daniel when you get to Paihia they love to help you create memories to last a lifetime here in the Bay of Islands.
