To find accommodation in the Western Bay, first decide whether you want beachside, city streets, or the peace and quiet of a country setting.If you want the beach and surf on your doorstep, and the famous walks of Mauao, look for accommodation in Mount Maunganui. There are plenty of options at the Mount, along Maunganui Road and Ocean Beach Road, often within walking distance of local beaches.
If you're more of a big city type, and want more bars, restaurants and cultural activities on tap - stay in central Tauranga or the Avenues. There are some lovely places to stay around the region - in friendly towns such as Katikati and Te Puke, and on quiet beaches and backblock farms.
