About this location

The Gisborne Region

Tolaga Bay (Uawa) in the Eastland region of New Zealand is both a bay and a small town on the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island located 45 kilometres northeast of Gisborne. Gisborne is also famously known for being the first city in the world to greet the sun each day. Tolaga Bay was named by Lt. James Cook, but the original M?ori name is Uawa Nui A Ruamatua (shortened to Uawa),

Tolaga Bay is the gateway to the wild and beautifully unspoilt coast. It has a population of over 600 people and Eastland Maori culture is prevalent. The town is a popular holiday spot and boasts a dry, sunny climate with high sunshine hours with very warm temperatures during the summer months of December, January & February. The region around the bay is rugged and remote, and for many years the only access to the town was by boat. Because the bay is shallow, a long wharf - the longest in New Zealand (660m) - was built to accommodate visiting vessels.

Short 1/2 day trips from Tolaga Bay will take you off the beaten tracks for quiet explorations of the unpopulated country and coast or for lots of adventure with horse riding, jet-boating, white-water rafting, tube rafters and kayaking or even back to the city for a spot of shopping where you can enjoy fine wines tasting and dining and get cultural with contemporary and indigenous art.

Tolaga Bay

With accessible magnificent swimming beaches, Tolaga Bay is an area rich in history and natural resources.You can kayak, fish or swim safely from the main town beach or at the foot of the wharf, collect mussels or walk down the wharf, it makes an excellent half hour stroll – bring your camera. Local charter boats can take you fishing for tuna, groper, snapper, terakihi, bluenose and kingfish. You can even swim with the dolphins on a lucky day

For the keen surfer Tolaga Bay is a beach break on a sandy beach with a short fast wave, that often closes out. It's a hollow or wally wave giving good rides. When its big you can jump off the wharf at the south end of the bay to get out the back. This is one of the few bays that can be sheltered in a southerly wind. Good for surfers of all levels, better for more experienced surfers.

Stretch your legs and head out of a number of Tolaga Bay walks. There's the Ernest Reeve Walkway leading to a great lookout over the bay or head to the Tolaga Bay Wharf for a stroll and a spot of fishing. Explore the sheltered, beautiful sandy bay at Cooks Cove, perfect for swimming and relaxing. You'll cross farmland, light bush and across grassy open flats, keeping mainly to a track just below the cliff tops overlooking Tolaga Bay.

Try your hand at feeding wild stingrays (under the supervision of a guide).

Hunting, historical tours, bowling club, golf course, skatepark and bush walking all within easy access. Gaze at the milky way, wake up early so you can be the first to see the dawn, or stay indoors wrap yourself in a book from the bach selection, listen to the ocean crashing waves or the absence of man-made noise, watch the world go by and appreciate a very relaxing holiday at its best.
