“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

I last visited Paihia in 2003, and I must say, not a lot has changed, phew! The million dollar views are still unobstructed, the beach still as nice. Winter is possibly the best time to visit as this place is packed in the summer. Do take the ferry across to Russell ... now, that is another story.

“Ataahua te wahi nei!!! (Beautiful place!!!!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

This place is a treasure and so beautiful. Kia Ora to all the Ngapuhi tangata whenua up north and all our other NZrs up there in the north end of Aotearoa. You have such treasures and taongas up there and you should be so proud to have these in/on your back yard. Mean as! AE (Yes!). We also have a precious taonga here in Aotea which is our whenua and the Awa just like you. SO Cool to be a NZlandr and Tangata Whenua. I am very proud to be one!!!

We took a stroll to the waterfalls. Great time to take pics and time to spend time with family. I probably wont go back again, but great to see if you have not been.
