Mount Maunganui

Aerial view of Mount Maunganui

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.

Mount Maunganui is a short drive from Tauranga airport and a beautiful beach town. We stay at The Atrium Apartments which is really nice and only a short 2 minute walk to the beach.

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!
