Bream Bay is an area of incredibly beautiful walks, excellent fishing and diving, stunning beaches for bird watching, kayaking, swimming, surfing and kite boarding and a fantastic playground for boaties.
Captain Cook anchored in the Bay in 1769 and, catching a large haul of “Bream” – snapper, named the area Bream Bay. This area is still pristine and full of great fishing, diving and snorkelling.
Bream Bay is circled by the majestic peaks of Manaia, Te Whara (Bream Head),Sail Rock and Marotiri and Taranga (The Hen and Chicken Islands). These extinct volcanoes, part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, all offer wonderful snorkelling, fishing and diving locations.
