Beaches and vineyards as far as the eye can see, scenic bird colonies and awesome headlands sum up this remote coastal region.
Blessed with the dry, sunny climate of the North Island’s east coast, Hawke’s Bay wines are as attractive as the region itself. Cycling trails connect all the wineries, so hire a tandem with a picnic hamper and off you go! Too laid-back for you? Then zoom down narrow trails from Te Mata Peak Lookout on a mountain bike or go paragliding. Must do: hike or take a beach tractor tour to Cape Kidnappers to see the gannets.
