Mount Maunganui Base Track Walk

Mount Maunganui is located in Tauranga and can be hiked to the top of, or walked around the base of the mount if you’re looking for an easier walk. We took our time as we were admiring the beautiful coastal views around every corner and took advantage of all the scenic benches along the track. It took about 45 mins to do, but we saw lots of people running or power walking their way around, so it can definitely be done in less if you’re crunched for time. Perfect for families as it is stroller (aka “pram”) friendly, just keep an eye on your little ones as it is a steep drop off the pathway and some areas of the track can be a little narrow if it is busy. Bring a picnic and enjoy the view at the end if you’d like, or head to the shops after for a nice lunch along the beach; the mount is a great place to go if you’re looking for just a quick walk to get you moving and close to town so you can continue on with your day after.
