1 hour - 1 Day Central Mount Maunganui
  • Highlights:
  • Golden beach
  • Great cafes and bars
  • Great for beginners and intermediates
  • Reliable good waves at all tides
 
DETAILS

A long beautiful beach for surfing. It's calmest at the Mount end of the beach and the beach starts to get a slightly bigger swell moving south along the beach towards Tay Street.

The beach is also busiest for swimmers at the Mount end as most cafes and motels are around there, so we'd recommend surfing slightly further down the beach.

You'll find surf schools dotted down the beach every 300-500m, each with a trailer for boards and wetsuite parked in a permanent spot, so these schools will typically surf in their own spots. The beach is big enough it's easy to find uncrowded spots to go surfing

A great attraction of the Mount are the calm conditions and consistent surf. A local instructor said only 10% of the days out of 365 has not been surfable, most of those in winter. And it's good to surf at all tides, making it not only a great place to learn but also reliable to set a time for a lesson and not get moved around.
