The most obvious attraction to the area is the pristine coastline. The Mount’s excellent surf beach rests on white sandy shores and provides an excellent location for swimmers and surfers alike. The beach is practically at the doorstep of some of our Mount Maunganui accommodation and there is no better place to stay when visiting this renowned New Zealand destination. Wander along the beach to Mauao and explore the remnants of Maori strongholds used during the land wars, or hike to the top and take in the breathtaking views.
The Main Street of Mount Maunganui is a vibrant centre, with boutique shopping, café’s, restaurants and bars lining the street. For more shopping near your accommodation in Mt Maunganui, be sure to stop in at the Bayfair Shopping Centre, which is one of the largest shopping malls on the North Island outside Auckland and Wellington.
