It's situated on the beautiful east coast, with big surf and white sand beaches. The name Tauranga means a sheltered anchorage, which is a very applicable name. The city is built around a large harbour (one of the largest in the country). The harbour is protected by the long Matakana Island, which shelters the inland waters from the Pacific Ocean. Different arms of the city extend along the beaches, and beside various estuaries. The suburbs include Bethlehem, Otumoetai, Matua, Ohauiti, Greeton, Welcome Bay, and the beach suburbs of Mount Maunganui, Omanu, and Papamoa. Mount Maunganui is the iconic mountain at the tip of the beach peninsula, formed by volcanic activity. The coastline really is postcard perfect, and it extends for miles south of the Mount. The temperate climate makes Tauranga a great place to spend summer. The port of Tauranga is one of the nation's busiest ports. The surrounding land is well knows for its kiwifruit and avocados.
