Wainui Beach - white sands and glorious renowned surf breaks
Kaiti Hill - get for a one hour walk (conquer the steps!) or drive for an amazing view of Young Nick's Head
Tolaga Bay - one one hour drive North East up the cape but worth it for a walk down the longest wharf in the Southern Hemisphere and an icecream

"Gisborne is lucky enough to occupy a beautiful and remote part of New Zealand. Its isolation perched out on the most easterly edge of the country has shaped the town and its charming coastal character.
The city is compact, easy to navigate and surrounded by world class surf beaches, quality vineyards, groves of citrus, magnificent trees and wild rivers that meander towards empty beaches.
Gisborne enjoys some of the best weather in New Zealand. It’s thanks to the high, hot sunshine hours, fertile clay loam soils and some of the most acclaimed winemakers in the country, that Gisborne is famous for producing exceptional Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Viognier, Pinot Gris, Merlot and Malbec."
