Fantastic beach in summer, plenty of space to find somewhere to set up for the day with the family. Water can be cold sometimes but on a hot day it is very refreshing. Be careful of rips and Mt Maunganui teenagers

This beach area is amazing, great restaurants, designer shops and fantastic walks. Just a bit back from the beach is a good shopping, eating, drinking precinct.

Number one place to visit during summer and even during the colder months. Stunning beach makes for a lovely walk, a place to chill out, or if you're up for more of a challenge you can have a walk around or up 'The Mount'.
