Travel guide to Whanarua Bay

whanarua bay - perfect snorkelling beach
Due to the remoteness of the East Cape from the main centers on the North Island, and the barriers to communication formed by the wild Raukumara Range and the impenetrable primeval forests of the Urewera Range, this area long remained isolated. European settlement in the area proceeded very slowly. In spite of a massive drift to the towns the proportion of Maoris in the population is still exceptionally high, and around a quarter of the land belongs to them. Much of the land is leased to white farmers. In the early days many European farmers allowed their land to run wild when their lease expired, and in the hilly interior there was severe damage from erosion after the forests were cleared.
