Why live in the Eastern Bay of Plenty?

Our sunny slice of paradise offers something for everyone. We know you’ll love it too.

​The warmer months bring even more buzz to town, from food festivals to marathons to live bands. There are so many outdoor activities to choose from to lap it all up too - whether that be a beach walk, or a bike ride along the river.

Are you a foodie? Look no further. In the colder months, the cafés up their game. The Whakatāne township is also home to the most delicious cuisine, from award-winning pies to Korean fusion to freshly baked croissants at Sunday’s markets.

​If water activities are what you're into, you'll never get bored. There's kayaking, paddleboarding and a great surf beach. Jetskiiers and watersports frequent the harbour, and further along Ōhope Beach on a windy day, you can join the kite surfers.


One of the only marine volcanic dive spots in New Zealand is off the coast of Whakatāne too. If you’d rather stay on the land, grab your rod and a chair, and find a spot on the wharf at high tide to join the other fishermen enjoying a lazy weekend. 

​Like weekends away? Whakatāne is only a few hours’ drive from the mountain or the lakes if you’ve seen enough of the sand.  It’s also a quick drive to Mount Maunganui if you’re keen to dabble in some shopping and the city life, before enjoying a scenic drive back to the traffic free Whakatāne.

The Eastern Bay of Plenty is beautiful, and we know you'll love it here! Come and join us!
