Hiking Trails · Beaches · Water Parks
The largest city in the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga features extensive sandy beaches, well-maintained hiking paths, and a good range of accommodations. Naturally, the top things to do in Tauranga cluster around its modern waterfront, with plenty of dolphin-spotting, sailing, and diving excursions. After a busy day, rest up in one of the town's many bars and restaurants. Head inland for eco-friendly tours of native forests and hills, and to snap photographs of one of Tauranga's many impressive waterfalls. Customize your holiday with our New Zealand sightseeing planner to create an adventure that suits you.
