The Bay of Plenty is a region of New Zealand often called in abbreviation BoP. The Bay of Plenty got its name from James Cook during the year 1769. He gave this name to the bay because he saw plentiful of food in the different Maori villages that he visited on the coast. It was to make the contrast with what he saw in Poverty Bay. The bay extends from Coromandel Peninsula to Cape Runaway. The population of the area is estimated to over 250,000 and is increasing. The dominating cities are Tauranga and Rotorua. The other most populated cities are Whakatane, Kawerau, Te Puke, Opotiki and Katikati. The two main industries of the region are tourism and agriculture. Sheep farming is also very common in part of New Zealand as in many parts of this country. The climate of the region is almost tropical. The important plants are apples, kiwis, timber and avocados. The Bay of Plenty is a beautiful place to visit; there are a lot of things to do in this area. The area has also a large number of accommodations and attractions.
