Bay of Plenty
The Bay of Plenty is a magnet for surfers and sun chasers, with great weather and 259 km of open coastline and a laid-back beach vibe.
The Bay of Plenty is known for its fresh produce- everything from kiwifruit and avocado, as well as seafood. Mount Maunganui is a popular beach town full of trendy cafes and boutique homeware stores. In the summer-time, there are plenty of options for alfresco dining with restaurants sprawling onto the sidewalks and a Gourmet Night Market runs every Friday from December through to March.
One of the top things to do - Visit the active volcano known as White Island, in the Whakatane area.
