Mangonui & Mill Bay

fishing-mangonui-harbourThe charming historic village of Mangonui sits on the watersedge of the Mangonui Harbour.  It is home to many attractive heritage buildings and still operates as a port of entry to New Zealand and a commercial fishing base. Mangonui is located in the centre of Doubtless Bay in the Far North of New Zealand.

There’s plenty to offer in terms of arts & crafts shops and cafes. In recent years Mangonui has become renowned as the home of ‘world-famous’ fish shop and restaurant – The Mangonui Fish Shop. You will also find all the local amenities you need including the Doubtless Bay Information Centre, bookshop, general store  with Post Centre and Kiwibank, auto and marine service centre, several real estate agents and computer and internet facilities.

From the Mangonui wharf you can see commercial fishing boats off-loading their catch. Line fishing is popular from the docks so bring your own rod and enjoy fresh fish cooked on our BBQs for dinner.

A pleasant and easy walk from Mangonui village is Mill Bay, with an attractive backdrop of the dominant Rangikapiti Pa and yacht anchored in the harbour in front of it. A visit to Rangikapiti Pa will reward you with a panoramic view overlooking Mangonui Harbour on one side and the whole of Doubtless Bay on the other.
