“Best view on the coast”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We cheated, and drove up to the end of the road, then it was only a few minutes walk up a well made, but sometimes steep, rocky path. Great 360 degree views from the look out at the top - coast, islands, surf beach, Pauanui, harbor, Tairua. For the more energetic, walking up from sea level would make the views seem even better.

“Must see location in the coromandel”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

It is a magical place, stunning view , easy to get there either by walking up the stairs (178 steps) or drive up to Tirinui Crescent and walk 15 minutes to the summit.

“Awesome views - worth the short climb”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Only took about 10-15 mins to climb up, relatively easy-going but steep for a short part. Well worth it for panoramic views from the top.

“Amazing view”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The view from the summit is really worth the afford hiking up. From the beach is an easy walkway up to the summit. A local told me 180 steps to it. Dont miss it!

“A hill with a view”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Mount Paku gives a panoramic view of Tairua and Pauanui. The harbour and coastline is so picturesque, you will be missing out if you do not climb this peak when you are in the area.
