I am a simple man. You know when you see the beech has been raked each morning that it is one fancy place! Clean water, clean sand. Just lovely.

In spite of the morning storm, the beach was still beautiful. The sand is packed perfectly here and the views of the island and the mount were outstanding.

The beach is groomed regularly to maintain its high standard. The boardwalks are neat and when the surf is up its an occasion for all. There is always something going on in this great location with a very active surf club and a community that obviously takes pride in their asset.

This is a beautiful beach for walking and swimming, and seaside games. We found it very clean and inviting. There is lots of room to spread out and enjoy the surroundings. Loved walking the beach first thing in the morning and watching the sun come up. Stunning!!

Beautiful, clean beach that stretches for miles. Surfer's dream! Regular volleyball, triathlon and boating competitions during the summer. Take a walk around the mount base track or climb to the summit to see the spectacular view! Views of seals, bronze whaler sharks and if you are lucky perhaps see the Blue Penguins trotting down the beach at sunset! Lots of... More

We are locals and very proud of our beach. Its nestled in the base of Mt Maunganui and the beach is kept pristine even when busy over summer. There are some great sports events over summer which make it crowded but fun. Outside of peak times it is just a beautiful peaceful beach to walk, swim and relax
