“Soak in the sun and muni-muni all day”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Loved the mix of sand, grass, rocks and beach all walking distance. The stretch of beach is lovely for both slower paced people like us and health buffs. So many spots to just lazily gaze at the beach, daydream (muni-muni in Filipino) or watch people bring in their catch and cook on the available gas bbq. The boardwalk is just lovely, too - nice for people with strollers.
What I disliked is coming here in the summer where it is all jumppacked.

nice long walks on the beach and watch the surf roll in, plenty of cafes nearby plus you can walk around The Mount, Shops are only a minute away and they have a good matket every Sunday morning

Reviewed April 29, 2013

The mount as it is known locally is one of the most beautiful beaches in New Zealand, been coming here all my life, never get tired of the views, spent about a decade enjoying the waterfront property of a friends parents holiday house, so beautiful to walk swim and surf at

“Best place to call home!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Can't really beat The Mount as far as I'm concerned, sure it get busy in the peak season but so does everywhere, just go further down the beach!!
