Bay of Plenty Tourist Attractions
The Bay of Plenty offers many exciting and memorable tourist attractions. Tauranga is a vibrant city located at the entrance to one of New Zealand’s largest natural harbours. Nearby Mount Maunganui offers pristine beaches and is a popular summer holiday destination. If you are after a rewarding 45 minute stroll, we recommend walking the scenic Mauao base track. Whakatane (an attractive town set on the banks of the Whakatane River) is also well worth a visit. It is the main base for taking trips out to White Island, one of the world’s few accessible live volcanoes.
