“James Cook, if he was still alive, might be surprised to hear that Anaura Bay, the beautiful beach he landed on in 1769 and where he met local Māori, is still largely unsettled.”

There’s no permanent population here which makes the bay feel like that much more of a find. With a DOC campground it gets busy in summer as the weather in Gisborne is usually reliably good. The views from the cliffs at either end of the beach are stunning and make for superb sunrises. But like all Gisborne beaches, please do take care when the swell is over a metre.
