We experienced this beach on both a stormy and calm day. It's great to walk along the boardwalk, take a diversion and walk out onto Leisure Island to make the most of the views, then stop on the way back and grab a coffee at one of the local cafes.

This is a great family beach, you can use harbour side which is great as it is calm and great for the little ones and watching the cruise liners come and go. Where as ocean side you get the breakers where these can be unpredictable at times suitable if you like swimming in the waves or body building or surfing.... More

Our beach at Mount Maunganui would be one of the best in the world (beats Hawaii we think!!!),you have a choice of swimming in the outer or inner harbour, its safe,lovely cafes and board walks near by. What more could you want......

Fantastic location for the whole family. Beautiful beach only couple of minutes from downtown's shops, cafes and restaurants. Hot pools, playgrounds, such a gem of sunny Bay of Plenty. You have to love it!;)

I have seen many famous European and American Beaches but I would rate the Mount Beach as the Beach I have seen. Beautiful back drop of Mount Maunganui and then extends for miles with Papamoa Beach alongside. Good surf on the right day too.

There's not much one can say about perfection created by nature. This has to be one of the worlds best beaches & manages even in the height of summer to escape from being spoilt by mans hand! This area is blessed with a near perfect climate in the balmy summer months. Just perfect!
