Our Location - Paihia, Bay of Islands right on the waterfront

35 Degrees South is aptly named for its latitudinal location (ok so our physical location is actually 35.28 degrees south but that is not nearly as catchy) here 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 situated over the water in the heart of Paihia, with spectacular views of the Bay of Island's and daily wharf activity 35 Degrees South is open 7 days a week for Lunch & Dinner. Seize the opportunity of watching a marlin being weighed, or sighting the day's catch, 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 35 Degrees South 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 when you get to Paihia they love to help you create memories to last a lifetime here in the Bay of Islands.
