Tauranga, which in the Maori language means “safe harbour”, is located at the mouth of a natural harbour overlooking the west coast of the Bay of Plenty.

In Tauranga you can discover the enchanting exoticism of a magnificent seaside town, situated on the North Island in New Zealand. After exploring the area, you can visit Mount Maunganui, an awe-inspiring dormant volcano that reaches an altitude of over 200 metres above sea level. You can then hop over to Motiti Island, just 10 minutes by plane from Tauranga, to enjoy the beautiful, pristine beaches.
