A must do when in Mt Maunganui - a beautiful beach, so very tranquil. Some nice food places along the esplanade area.

Nice beach not as good as the beachside in Australia though is a relaxing place to go and have a rest. And a good place to bring kids

I don't think I've had a summer in New Zealand where I haven't been to this beach. I love it every time I go there with family and friends. Always a fun packed atmosphere.

Such a beautiful beach! Even better in the summer time when thousands of people come to relax, swim and play sport :)

I've never seen such a stunning vista. The beach, on the day I visited, was roaring in with huge waves and the sunny day was just perfect to admire this location. The beach is clean with very well appointed toilets nearby. A walk on this beach is a very enjoyable way to spend an hour ... Or two!

Great beach, steps from town close to restaurants, shops, etc. If you like to look for shells - this is your beach.

One of the most popular and best beaches in NZ, with all amenities close by, restaurants, cafes, bars, hot-pool, motels, etc. A must for every couple, teens/young travellers or young families.

Winter or summer, this beach is always lovely. Winter walks at low tide are excellent with lots to see and keep you amused. The beach is so long you can walk as long or as short as you wish..

A must to come to for a relaxing weekend or holidays 😜👍
