“PAPAMOA Papamoa is another popular beach and is 16km long. It runs along the same coast line as Mount Manganui. It is a quieter beach than The Mount and very popular during the summer months. In the summer months on a Thursday evening they hold Dinner in the Domain in the Papamoa Reserve. Its full of food options and live entertainment. The drive is 18.5km taking around 21 minutes to get there. Papamoa had a cute shopping centre and a nice restaurant BLUEBIYOU on the beachfront. ”

Nature
“Just under 20 minutes by car, a generally uncrowded and beautiful short hike that’s suitable for older children and families. There are several cascading falls as you progress down the valley. Give yourself a whole morning or afternoon for this short trip, approx 3hrs including drive should be sufficient. It’s a relatively easy hike with steps, but isn’t suitable for those who have mobility issues and shouldn’t be visited after or during heavy rain as the path gets muddy and dangerous.”
