Bay of Islands, New Zealand

With 150 islands strung through the turquoise waters surrounding New Zealand, the Bay of Islands is a serene site. The children take ferries to school and the fishermen set records for kingfish, marlin, shark and tuna. The major excursion here is Fuller's Cream Trip. Tourists pack the quaint craft that sails the islands to pick up dairy products from the farms. Sea kayaking, diving and trips to the Glowworm Grotto, a huge cavern illuminated by the light of millions of glowworms, are among the most popular excursions.
