Sunny Opotiki is based in the Eastern Bay of Plenty only forty minutes from Whakatāne and two hours from Tauranga, Rotorua and Gisborne. Steeped in culture, it's a district of diversity with a landscape that ranges from beautiful coastal vistas, stunning beaches and secluded valleys to crystal clear mountain streams. Ōpōtiki's wonderful natural environment stretches along the Pacific Ocean coast against a backdrop of bush-clad mountain ranges. Here you can experience world-class fishing, diving, hiking, mountain biking and a wealth of other activities. The pretty Waioeka and Otara rivers pass right through town, and are frequently paddled by kayakers.
