Anaura Bay

About a 90-minute drive from central Gisborne, on the East Coast of the North Island, Anaura Bay is a picture-perfect beach paradise.

This small idyllic bay is surrounded by forest and coastal bush. It’s the perfect spot to swim and surf. And there is also a hike along the Anaura Bay Walkway where you can soak up all the views.

Anaura Bay has been named as one of the best beaches in New Zealand. A scenic reserve at the northern end of the bay includes a walkway and campsite.
