Tip from Travel + Leisure

Mount Maunganui

Take a detour to Mount Maunganui, a beach town on a peninsula that’s actually a large sandbar. The “mount” refers to Mauao, an extinct volcano at the peninsula’s northernmost point that rises 761 feet from the water. You can climb to the summit to soak in Pacific Ocean views, or stay in town and watch surfers master the waves.
