Tauranga Bay, Maori for “sheltered anchorage”, is 16kms south of Westport and 57kms north of Punakaiki on the West Coast of South Island. Our unique seaside location is a just a stone throw from the Tasman Sea - Step out of your beachside studio or garden suite, walk just 20 to 50 metres and you are on the beach. There are rock pools to fossick or bathe in, soft golden sands to stretch out on, amazing surf to play in (lessons available) and short strolls or long walks all around. Choose to do it all…. or as little as possible, and at the end of the day be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean and chatter of penguins. Stay for a day or more and simply relax, unwind and be happy in our little corner of Eden.
