What can't you like about this beach. Surf, swim, or just sit on the beach. Nice and safe to swim here, plus walk around or up the mount. Great day out for the anyone.

Mt Maunganui beach was a short walk from the backpackers. The beach carried on well into the horizon to the east. We walked up to the main beach area and had lunch in a cafe beneath the mount. This would be one of the most beautiful beaches I have visited in the world. The New Zealand people were happy to... More

Our own slice of paradise in our own back yard. Less than 20 minutes from anywhere - what's not to like!!. Swimming, surfing walking, or just lying on the sand - it's just all so easy. Give it a try - I dare you!!

Moun Maunganui offers over 25 km sandy beautiful beaches for everyone to enjoy. The water is CRYSTAL clear and waves vary from big surfers ones to smaller "swimable" ones, all depending on where you go. Had many a day on the beach, getting a tan, playing rugby, BBQs or just building sandcastles. Just remember to wear sun lotion... First time... More

Great ocean beach with golden sands. Mt. Maunganui to walk around or climb for fantastic views. See the sunrise....beautiful. An island to explore. Miles of beach or a boardwalk for prams or wheelchairs.

It's more than just a beach - it's the best beach I know of in NZ - You can walk for miles and finish with a great coffee at the Sidetrack Cafe

This is a very safe beach which is patrolled by life-guards over the summer months. There are no greebies in the water [like jell-fish]and the water is pollution free. An ideal place to meet the locals who are all friendly and helpful You will enjoy your time here,but, beware of the sun---burn time is quite short

The mount beach is great place to visit whether your a family or an active couple. There are walks around the mount or up the mount next to the beach. The golden sand is great to enjoy on a sunny day and host to some great sporting events. The cafés are close by if you need them. I can't think... More
