Opotiki District is made up of miles of coastline, clean fast running rivers, vast areas of native bush and farmland. The people of the district live in a number of communities scattered along the coast. Each community has a strong and distinctive spirit and an inherent appreciation of the area in which they live. This forms the basis of the solid and determined collective community in which the Opotiki District Council works.

The district is identified as Opotiki Coast by Nature in recognition of the distinctive characteristics of the people and their affinity to the natural environment.
