Papamoa New Zealand
Papamoa is situated in the Tauranga District of the Bay of Plenty region on the northeastern coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Papamoa is the largest suburb in Tauranga City. Papamoa has miles of white sandy beach stretching from Mount Maunganui in the west to the Kaituna River in the east. Prior to the 1980's Papamoa had been largely a rural area. Papamoa is now one of the fastest growing areas in New Zealand due to the increase in popularity of coastal communities, close proximity to Tauranga and recent local shopping developments.
Once a small and tight knit community, many of Papamoa's sweeping paddocks have been swallowed up by urban development. Papamoa's real estate prices have also sky-rocketed in recent times. Papamoa is also renowned for its fishing, surfing and the Papamoa Hills Cultural Heritage Regional Park. As a surfing spot, the area is underrated and has often been seen as the 'poor cousin' to Mount Maunganui.
PAPAMOA BEACH

Papamoa Beach is a 14km stretch of white sandy coastline renowned for great swimming and surfing. In addition to our lifeguard service, Papamoa SLSC offers a comprehensive Junior Surf programme for 5 - 13 year olds, a Rookies Junior Lifeguard programme for 12-13 year olds and a competitive Surf Sports programme for those 10 years and up. The club has a large active membership passionate about our beach community.
PAPAMOA HILLS REGIONAL PARK
Located in the Western Bay of Plenty, near Te Puke, Papamoa Hills Regional Park is a 135 hectare property explored and enjoyed by thousands of visitors each month. Papamoa Hills Regional Park in the Bay of Plenty, opened in 2004, was the first regional park outside the Auckland and Wellington regions. The park contains a large number of early Maori pa sites. The summit is 224 metres above sea level and offers sweeping views of the Bay of Plenty coastline.
KAIATE FALLS

Just a 15-minute drive from Papamoa, Kaiate Falls is a multi-step waterfall hidden deep in the forest. Take a 1-hour loop walk to the upper part of the falls before making its way down to the base of the falls. Check out these 12 Most Wonderful Waterfalls in New Zealand for more unmissable waterfalls. Take State Highway 2 to Kairua then turn onto Welcome Bay Road. Travel 5km then turn on Waitao Road then onto Kaitate Falls Road. Part of the journey is on a gravel road.
