Fodor's Review

People often bypass Whangarei on their way to the Bay of Islands. It's easy to see why, as the town has a confusing traffic system, but if you can brave it the area known as the Whangarei Town Basin is worth a look. The marina is now a haven for traveling yachts and has cafés, restaurants, galleries, and crafts shops. There's parking behind the basin off Dent Street.
