Nice Beach, good for a visit
Oct 2020 • Family
We were staying across the road from the beach at the top 10. It was nice enough to walk along and you could spend a nice afternoon here with a picnic, overall it’s not an amazing beach but nice enough none the less.

We stayed at the Top 10. Heated swimming pool is such a bonus with children. Gorgeous wee place for a long weekend.

Beautiful Beach
Jan 2021 • Family
Beautiful long coast with really nice sandy beach. Pleany of parking and long concrete paths for cycling and seem to go a long way. There are surf lifesaving flags for safe swimming although there was a shark attack the week before, but all NZ beaches have sharks close

Stunning beach
Oct 2020
Bring the kids or the dog, excellent for swimming or taking long walks. Just don't stop at the Flatwhite cafe, it's service is shocking and food is only just average.

Fabulous beach
Mar 2020
Soft clean sand, beautiful waves on the ocean, clear blue skies. What’s not to love about this place. Very quiet even at the weekend. Miles of beach to enjoy. Highly recommended

Beautiful Golden Sand Beach
Feb 2020 • Couples
My pick for this beach is the Esplanade end in front of the Surf Club. A little bit more relaxed than Mount Maunganui but just as spectacular. This end of the beach has the added advantage of the raising coastline offering some shelter and rocks to climb on.

Love it here
Jan 2020 • Couples
Not been here since 2018 and I forgot how beautiful it is with something for everyone. The recent days have been sunny and windy on the beach - great for the surfers and the swimmers. Although it’s not golden sand it is nice to walk on especially from one end to the other. As it is the school summer holidays there are lots of families around - it is great to see.

Beautiful but very windy
Dec 2019 • Family
It’s a beautiful beach, ideal for walking or running but it seemed too windy for swimming. Perhaps we were unlucky with the weather but waves were huge!
