For great views over the Bay of Plenty, go a couple of minutes north of Katikati on State Highway 2 to the Lindemann Road Lookout. It's signposted where Lindemann Road turns off the main road. Drive 3.5 km (2 mi) to the road end and the lookout. The road is good but narrow in parts. At the lookout you'll find a map embedded in rock to help orient you. Look for Mayor Island just to the north and Mauao (Mt. Maunganui) to the south. If the weather is clear you might even
see volcanic White Island, farther to the south.
