    The Meaning Behind Miritu

    Decades ago a gentleman who farmed the bay called the area Miritu. Whilst there is no official Maori translation, local Maori link it with 'hanging cliffs' or 'hanging gardens'.

    Interestingly 'miri' in Maori is 'massage' and 'tu' means standing. You will find 'Miritu' on the Marine Charts in the Kumatage Lounge and Bight Cafe
