Mt Maunganui Free Visitor Attractions
Mt Maunganui is a popular holiday resort town renowned for its surf and safe swimming beaches located in the Bay of Plenty. The grueling mount summit climb takes about one and a half hours, and covers a distance of just under four kilometres, but is well worth the climb with amazing views of the beach, Matakana Island, and boats coming and going through the small harbour entrance to the Port of Tauranga. The 45-minute Mauao's Base Track is one of New Zealand's most popular walks - wander along the wide, well-maintained pathway to see expansive ocean views, peaceful beach inlets and majestic pohutukawa trees, pausing along the way to admire the view.
Moturiki Island | Leisure Island is a popular visitor attraction just off Mount Maunganui’s Main Beach. It's connected to the beach and you can simply walk across and enjoy the views, the crashing waves and watch the surfers just off the island.
"The Mount" is New Zealand's most popular walk. It's estimated a million people walk up or around the mountain each year. On any given day you will encounter thousands of walkers, runners, parents with pushchairs, old, young - all simply enjoying this beautiful coastal walk / climb.
