Tauranga

Ride a boat out to an active volcano, go whitewater rafting or just relax on a sheltered beach in this coastal town surrounded by wild hills.

Encompassing a collection of bays within a dramatic volcanic landscape, Tauranga is a beautiful coastal city. Enjoy the variety of different beaches lining the bays and explore the hilly countryside for some panoramic views of the whole region. And, if you’re brave enough, venture inside an active volcano.

Choose from a wide range of beaches along Tarauga’s bays and peninsulas. Mount Maunganui Main Beach is the best beach for surfers, as it has some of the area’s largest waves. Beginners should catch the medium-sized waves at Waihi Beach, which is located to the north of the city. Surfing lessons are available if you are just starting out. If you are looking for a place to take the family, visit the calm waters of Pilot Bay, which is protected from the surf by Mount Manganui.

Book a seat on a boat to explore the waters off the Tauranga coastline. One of the area’s most interesting attractions is White Island, a small landmass crowned by an active volcano. Board a diving boat and explore the coral reefs or ride a fishing boat out into deep water and catch some fresh seafood.

Explore Tauranga’s inland attractions. Go rafting on the nearby Wairoa River, which features some intense rapids. Visit one of several nature parks near the city, such as Te Puna Quarry Park or Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park. Hike or bike through the wooded hills.

If you have had enough outdoor adventures for the day, explore the Tauranga city centre. Learn about local history at museums such as the Tauranga Military Collection or admire art by local residents at the Tauranga Art Gallery. Enjoy a meal at one of Tauranga’s many gourmet restaurants and make sure to try some regional wine.

Tauranga is located in the northwestern part of the Bay of Plenty. The city’s beaches and bays make it one of the best places to experience New Zealand’s north coast.
