Bay of Plenty
Fishing, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, surfing, sunbathing and more—there’s plenty to do in, well, the Bay of Plenty. Choosing is the challenge: Do you want to discover New Zealand’s only active marine volcano on White Island? Would you prefer to take a dolphin "sea-fari"? How about exploring the wildlife and marine sanctuary on Tuhua (Mayor Island) with a day of hiking and diving? You can even opt for a surfing lesson at Mount Maunganui, a relaxed town with one of the best beaches in New Zealand. One day is not enough!
