If you love sunbathing and swimming, Maunganui Beach is the place for you. Surf livesavers patrol the beach so you feel safe. Cafes and icecream shops are just across the road, hot pools are nearby.

We were there on a sunny day, the water was glistening, the white sand had been groomed, being before Xmas, there were not a lot of people on the beach. This is a magnificent beach, I don't think I have seen better anywhere in the world.

Absolutely loved this beach! I walked for hours and found gorgeous sea shells of all kinds. The beach was never crowded, at times I felt like I was the only one on it!

Golden Sands, great cafes, good toilet facilities. Patrolled swimming beach by our wonderful local Lifeguards. Walks around the Mount and Leisure Island for those that are more active or a fossick in the rock pools around the base track....something for everyone.
