If you’re looking for a laid-back beach holiday, Mount Maunganui won’t disappoint.

Mount Maunganui has been named the best beach in New Zealand and is one of the world’s top beaches. You can relax, sunbathe, or stroll on the beach. Enjoy more active water activities such as snorkeling, diving, surfing, and paddleboarding, or be delighted by everyone’s favorite ocean mammals on a dolphin-watching tour.

You’ll also want to climb the town’s namesake, Mount Maunganui. This extinct volcano rises 232 meters from the ocean. You can enjoy 360-degree views of the Bay of Plenty from the top. Take pictures of Pilot’s Bay, the ocean beach, and the town. You might even get a bird’s eye view of your bach.

It will take about an hour to hike to the top and get back down; it’s not a long hike, but it is steep. We recommend stopping at a cafe afterward to reward yourself with a refreshing brew.

There’s also an outstanding two and a half kilometer base track around Mount Maunganui. You might get lucky and spot sea lions sunning themselves.

Mount Maunganui has many cafes, restaurants, and bars. Stroll Marine Parade and pick out your favourite. Taste test your way through 32 craft beers on tap at The Rising Tide.

Kick your feet up, and people-watch at The Deckchair Cafe, which is open for breakfast and lunch. The scones are divine, and breakfast is served all day. This is a great place to plan the day’s itinerary while sipping hot coffee. Enjoy local produce and seafood at “The Fire.”

Now that you are working on your itinerary check out a few of the Mount Maunganui Apartments waiting for you to call them home.
