Taupo Bay, Northland Region

(4.4/5 based on 85 reviews on the web)
Known for its ideal surfing conditions and idyllic views, popular Taupo Bay draws water sport enthusiasts and families alike. The wide beach slopes gently into the sea, making the water perfect for children. When you get bored, check out hiking, fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, and many more activities. The mountainous surroundings include lush forests and a large lake. Find accommodations and campgrounds just off the sand, so you can wake up in the gorgeous setting, too.
