Last week I was in Mount Maunganui for a work hui-meeting. We travel there a few times a year and I have to say it is one of my favourite work trips for CORE Education Ltd.
It is an awesome place to get some exercise in as you are amping to get outside and enjoy the scenery. I love walking down the beach, running along the beachside baordwalk and walking right around the Mount, it takes about 45 minutes and is not too difficult. If you want a challenge, you can climb up to the summit, no idea how long that will take as I haven’t pushed myself to do it…yet!
There are lots of shops and great restaurants in the Mount and Tauranga is a 10 minute drive so easy to go and explore there too.
I would LOVE to bring my husband and kids here for a holiday too. Hopefully the next time we come up for work I will fly them in. The Atrium is a great place to stay for families, has a pool and spa and rooms are great value.
The Mount is a def must visit in NZ and I will be coming back again, hopefully with the man and kids in tow!
