Activities — Mt Maunganui, New Zealand

Being across the road from the beach gives you the opportunity to take in the view from your unit. Stroll across the road to the water.

A 10-minute walk will have you on the Main Ocean Beach, or at the commencement of the walking track around the base of Mount Maunganui (Mauao).

If shopping is what you are looking for a 5-minute walk will have you in the CBD.

The Main Beach provides you with swimming and surfing opportunities whilst Pilot Bay offers flat water. The hot pools are also here. There are many commercial operators providing opportunities to enjoy the water. These include – fishing charters, dolphin watching, game fishing, diving and snorkelling, surfing lessons, surf board hire, jet skiing, kayaking or just lying on the beach.
