Bay of Islands is one of the most popular regions in New Zealand, due to a lovely climate, great scenery, lots of activities and places of historical importance.
We didn't like Paihia too much, because it is more or less overcrowded (at least during summer season). Russell is much nicer and still rather quiet.
An absolutely must see tip is Waitangi: birthplace of a Nation. February 6 in 1840 was the so called Waitangi Treaty signed by Maori's and the British resident. And that was the birth of modern New Zealand.
