Find a Land of Plenty Beside the Bay of Plenty

Situated in the heart of the sunniest region of the North Island, Tauranga is a popular seaside getaway for locals and visitors alike. Initially settled by the Māori in the 13th century, the Bay of Plenty area has an abundance of things to see and do.

Relax on one of the many golden beaches that make this area popular with surfers, sailors, and divers. Venture out on the water for dolphin watching, or even a jet boat ride if you have a need for speed. Grab a bite to eat and a refreshing glass of New Zealand vino on the Strand—a waterfront area is filled with restaurants, cafés, and pubs, which is also the perfect location for people watching.

Head just outside of town to the site of Te Puia, which includes a thermal valley, the Pohutu geyser, mud pool, and the Pikirangi Māori village. Soak your tired limbs in the rejuvenating thermal pools and then learn more about Māori culture at the carving and weaving schools. And if you’re timing is right, you just might get to witness the spectacular sight of the Pohutu geyser shooting nearly 100 feet into the sky.
