Couples Adventures

A Short Break

Tairāwhiti Gisborne has everything you need for a couple’s weekend away. From outdoor adventures and culinary delights to relaxation and romance.

Don’t forget to grab a sunrise while you’re in the region of the first light – beaches remain a popular spot for viewing.



Accommodation varies from the ever-popular glamping spots like Manutuke Eco Retreat or the beachside Tatapouri Bay, through to hotels with a view, ocean side motels or boutique lodges.


Tasty Local Treats


Take your pick of delicious eateries for brunch, lunch or dinner. With boats coming in regularly you know the seafood is fresh and easily devoured.

Pick a cellar door for a platter and wine tasting, or head to Sunshine Brewery for the spot to be for some delicious wood-fired pizzas and local brews either onsite or takeaway.

Rails to Waves

Engaging with Nature

Start your days on a cycling adventure, exploring areas unknown on the tandem creations from Railbike Adventures. BYO picnic lunch for the most scenic of stops at Beach Loop before zooming back down.

Meeting the friendliest stingrays on Dive Tatapouri Reef Ecology Tour is a Tairāwhiti Gisborne must-do, but make sure to time the low tides right.

Why not grab a board and head out to the breaks with one of the many surf instructors here who can cater for all levels of experience. You will be a pro in no time!
