Bay of Plenty region

The Bay of Plenty region is on the east coast of the North Island and takes in the full sweep of the coastline, from Lottin Point in the east to Waihi Beach in the west.

On the landward side, the region is mostly bound by the watersheds of the catchments flowing into the Bay of Plenty. This includes the lakes in the Rotorua district. On the ocean side there are 18 offshore islands extending out to the 12-nautical-mile boundary. The region is 21,836sq km in area.
