Relaxing day out from Paihia base

A great family day out if looking to do something from your Paihia base. Fair prices at Cafe, safe swimming for the kids and optional extra activities if wanting to do more than enjoy a lazy lunch/drinks and swim (and take in different scenery on the return trip)

Awesome family day out

Absolutely loved urapukapuka island. We took our newborn baby for a day trip and it had everything we needed. Beautiful walks, beaches and swimming. We saw stingrays and just stunning views of the BOI. The cafe was great - good holiday atmosphere and had all the facilities for the little one. A great stop for a drink before heading home. Would thoroughly recommend
