5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful clean beach. The whole family had a great time boogie boarding for hours. Nearby are plenty of shops, cafes etc. Worth visiting after walking around The Mount.

“Plenty of room and very clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Went on New Year's Day and it was crowded but still plenty of room to stretch out. The water as so clear with fantastic swimming. Only downside: dogs allowed on part of beach without leads and board riders allowed to surf in same area as swimmers. On a whole it was a lovely beach to visit. Very very busy area around Xmas and new year.

“I wish the weather was as nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is a beautiful beach with lots of cafes on the side. man it was amazing just looking at the beach and the water. not so many boats, jet skies and what have you, so a swimmer could really enjoy a dip. unfortunately the weather was bit crazy while we were there, so that was a missed opportunity. well, something to do for the next time!

“How do one describe paradise?”

We have the privilege of living close to Mt Maunganui and we visit this beach very regularly..........why would we go anywhere else for a holiday when we have it all here? Come see for yourself!

“White sand and surf beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

One of the beaches NZ is known for. Lots of sand and surf and if you time it right you'll have it all to yourself. Other times it will be packed out.
