Create an itinerary including Mount Maunganui Base Track
With a summit 460 m (1,509 ft) above sea level and the peak just 700 m (2,296.6 ft) away from the coastline, Mount Maunganui Base Track appears defiant and dominant in its surroundings. A walkway leading through coastal forest and farmland will take you to the top if you want the best view of the Tasman Surf. The alternative trails placed around the base offer an easy and relaxing walk for all fitness levels. Those not looking for a hike can explore nearby restaurants and cafes, or stop at a shop for picnic fixings. The clear blue beaches below offer swimming; however, you may need to exercise slight caution off the main beach as the current can sometimes be unpredictable. Put Mount Maunganui Base Track and other Tauranga attractions into our Tauranga day trip planning tool, and watch your holiday take shape.
