You can’t travel New Zealand without visiting the best beach in the country (we’re not making it up - check out what TripAdvisor has to say). If that’s not enough to entice you - discover why Mount Maunganui - or The Mount, as locals refer to it, has been the summertime destination of choice among kiwi families for generations. 

Our little beach paradise is the perfect place to sit back, relax, and soak up the sun (which is very hot in summer, make sure you bring sun protection!). There are literally kilometres of white sand beaches to enjoy - you won’t struggle to find empty space (in fact, sometimes you’ll struggle to find another person).
