New Zealand

Bay of Plenty

One of the country's premier holiday destinations, the Bay of Plenty has long been popular with locals and visitors alike thanks to the white sandy beaches, crystal clear surf, beautiful harbours, and an unbeatable lifestyle.

The main city of Tauranga is situated just 3 hours drive from Auckland on a magnificent harbour containing two large marinas and the country's largest export port. The popular seaside resort town of Mount Maunganui is just a five minute drive across the harbour bridge. The many small towns of the region reflect the horticultural richness of the land with Te Puke being named the kiwi fruit capital of the world.
