Beyond the glittering Strand of Tauranga and golden sands of Mount Maunganui, the Bay of Plenty, true to its name, has plenty to offer visitors.
If you're craving excitement, the Bay of Plenty is sure to delight you.
Boasting the sunniest climate in the North Island, the Bay of Plenty is a great place to enjoy the outdoors year-round - whether you want to challenge your fitness or simply seek out the perfect picnic spot.
Just five minutes apart, Tauranga and Mount Maunganui offer a brilliant combination of urban lifestyle and beachside relaxation.
The Bay of Plenty has a great mix of local and world-class cuisine. Fresh seafood is a specialty in many restaurants due to the regions' proximity to the sea.
