Awesome guys and really reasonable hire prices, even went back a second time to explore the islands close to Paihia more. Highly recommend if you're visiting the area, the nearby island beaches are full of loads of awesome coves and great for shell collecting.

Great place to hire bikes for the Twin Coast cycle trail! Dan was very helpful in organising bikes for us and transporting us to Opua to bike to Kawakawa and back. Efficient service and very knowledgeable about the local area.

We rocked up without a reservation and Dan helped get us sorted with gear, instruction and enthusiasm. It's a great place to learn Stand-Up-Paddleboarding. I'd recommend Bay Beach Hire SUP to anyone who wants to take away a deeper memory of a great location.
