Bay of Plenty

The sunny climate and beachy atmosphere of the Bay of Plenty make it a place to have fun. Laugh with the locals while you sample the easy-going lifestyle, explore the 125 kilometres of white sand beaches, visit an active marine volcano and much more. The main centres in the Bay of Plenty are Mt Maunganui – with one of the best beaches in New Zealand, Tauranga – a relaxed port city with lots to do, Te Puke – the kiwifruit capital of New Zealand, and Whakatane – the gateway to White Island. Don’t miss the surf beaches at Mt Maunganui, the Haiku Pathway in Katikati or the beautiful Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park.
