The Bay of Plenty was named so because of the abundance of fruits and foods and its fertile soil properties. The warm condition helps in growing any type of food product including the world famous kiwifruit and other exotic produce like avocados, grapes and other sub tropical fruits.
With so much fresh produce in our backyard, it’s easy to enjoy locally grown fruits and vegetables. Restaurants and cafes make good use of locally-grown foods in creative ways.
If you’re looking for a nice place to enjoy a hot drink or a meal, the Bay of Plenty region offers a number of restaurants and cafés located in scenic spots. Or enjoy a nice meal or drink in one of the region’s award-winning wineries.
