Thanks to relatively mild winters on the northern coast of North Island, Bay of Plenty lives up to its name in terms of things to do in the area. Bay of Plenty is New Zealand’s warmest region, and even during the winter, average temperatures hover between 9 and 16 degrees Celsius. There are many beaches along the 129km stretch of the bay, and the warm climate brings a lot of people here. As such, Tauranga is an urban centre nestled up to the beach, with about 134,000 people. Even though it may be too cold to go in the water in winter, a walk along the beach still lets you see the beautiful blue waters and stunning vistas alongside beach attractions on the edge of the city. Three mountains in the area’s western portion, most notably Mount Maunganui, offer fantastic views of the bay and the city. These beautiful areas also play an important part of New Zealand history. Maori legend says that migration canoes made landfall in the Bay of Plenty as the Maori people settled in this region. James Cook made first contact with the Maori in 1769, and he named this area Bay of Plenty for the abundant food sources here.
