You have the choice to hike to the Summit of Mount Maunganui, for stunning views of the town and surrounds, or for an easier option, take the Base Track. The path winds around the mount, through farmland and forested trails at ground level. Bring your own lunch to picnic on the beach or visit one of the great beachfront cafes of bakeries. Follow up this great with a swim. In summer we'll swim at the beautiful Mount Beach, and on the colder days we'll enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot pools at the base of the Mount.
