“Nice comfortable walk”

Mount Maunganui Base Track

Attraction details
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Loved the local sheep who were oblivious to the people walking past. The trail is windy but pretty flat for the most part and there's plenty of seats to sit and watch the world go by. It was a beautiful warm day when we were there and its one of those locations where the weather makes all the difference. Other than that its nothing overly special.

My wife and I walked around the Mount for the first time last weekend. A comfortable walk, you do not have to be super fit to enjoy this - undulating but not difficult and the track is suitable for pushchairs and wheelechairs. Seats dotted along the way to rest and watch boats and people pass. Nice views of Pilot Bay and also of the main beach. We took our time, lingering to enjoy the views. Next time we will take a picnic lunch.

The bluff walk is one of the must do attractions when visiting the Mount and you score the extra points for exercise as well. Views are amazing. Can be completed in poor weather as well as brilliant sunshine. Well worth the effort.

Mt Maunganui is an amazing place. The locals are laid back, helpful, friendly and awesome to socialise with.

I'm from the mount and I can never get enough of this beautiful natural feature. The numerous walks up and around it are beautiful at any time of the day or year. You can take a pushchair or wheelchair around here too. There is access down to the statue and beach on the harbourside and there is access down to shelly beach on the oceanside. Actually there are lots of opportunities to checkout the sealife around this track, just take care of the swell. In the morning go clockwise and see the sun rise before you, over motiti island or wait for sunset and go anticlockwise and see the sun set over the kaimais. A must do when your in the mount!
