Golden Bay region

Golden Bay is a shallow, paraboloid shaped bay in New Zealand, near the northern tip of the South Island. An arm of the Tasman Sea, the bay lies northwest of Tasman Bay and Cook Strait. It is protected in the north by Farewell Spit, a 26 km long arm of fine golden sand which is the country’s longest sandspit.

The Aorere and Takaka Rivers flow into the bay from the south.

Its beaches like Tata Beach are popular locations for retirees and holiday-homes.
