Editors note: North Island Mount Maunganui is regarded as a coastal resort town, although Port of Tauranga, a major facility, is also partly located on the western (harbour) side. 'The Mount' is the colloquial name for Mount Maunganui, a relaxed beach town that occupies a peninsula at the southern end of Tauranga Harbour.

The peninsula is actually a huge sandbar, with a sheltered bay on the inner harbour side and a magnificent surf beach on the ocean side. At the tip of the peninsula is a dormant volcano - Mauao - which rises to 230 metres above sea level. There is a choice of tracks leading to the summit, some more challenging than others.

Huge views of the harbour, beach and Pacific Ocean make the effort totally worthwhile.

Mauao is an archaeological site of national significance, with a large pa (fort) site on top of the mountain.
