SUMMER HOLIDAY FUN
1. LEARN TO SURF
There’s no better time to learn the basics of surfing; our safe beaches and gentle swells provide the perfect conditions for learner surfers. Book a lesson with one of the many surf schools dotted along the coast. You’ll be “hanging 10” in no time!
3. SAMPLE SOME OF THE BEST BURGERS IN NEW ZEALAND
The Surf Shack Eatery at Waihī Beach serves up possibly some of the best burgers in the country (according to Lonely Planet, no less). This local gem is well worth a visit!
4. DISCOVER SOME OF THE BAY'S HIDDEN FOODIE GEMS
Take a tour with Taste of Plenty and uncover some epic local foodie experiences; from ice cream, snags and honey, to locally brewed cider, wines and plenty more.
9. TAKE TO THE SKIES
Time to tick something off the bucket list! Adventure Helicopters offers a range of scenic flights including the Mount Magic flight which takes you up and around, yep, you guessed it, Mount Maunganui.
