You’ll find us nestled in the idyllic beachfront paradise that is Papamoa.  Papamoa is a laid-back coastal settlement situated in the North Island’s stunning Bay of Plenty.  It is famous for its picture-postcard-perfect scenery and glorious sunsets.

If you’re looking for a relaxed, tranquil place to truly relax and unwind, this is where you want to be.

Papamoa is the largest suburb in the city of Tauranga, and is one of New Zealand’s top fishing and surfing spots. 
It is best known for its long stretch of white sand that curves from the Kaituna River towards Mount Maunganui.

Even though it is the perfect setting to slow down and revive in, don’t think it’s all just about soaking in the sun or admiring the spectacular ocean views.  You can do as much or as little as you like here in Papamoa. 

There is an exciting array of local restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and retail stores for you to choose from - all conveniently within walking distance of Papamoa Beach Resort. 

If it’s an adrenalin rush you’re after visit BloKart Recreation Park – where you can have a blast on their specially built wind operated land-sailing machines (Blo-Karts) or new electric Drift Karts!

Like to walk?  The Papamoa Hills Regional Park (Te Rae o Papamoa) features a must-see walking track that meanders through pine forest, native bush and open grassland.  It showcases the terracing on several historic Maori pa sites.  Once you reach the summit there are breathtaking panoramic views across Papamoa and the nearby islands of Motiti, Matakana, Rangiwaea and Tuhua.  

Basically there’s something for everyone to enjoy here in beautiful, sunny Papamoa!
