Mt Maunganui Hiking Adventure and a short-sweet Stay in Maketu

Hi Friends,

Join us as we recount the highlights of our Maketu and Mt Maunganui hiking trip! In this video, you'll witness the captivating views from the top of Mt Maunganui and get a glimpse of the stunning scenes from our AirBnB in Maketu.

Nestled between Tauranga and Whakatane, Maketu is a charming spot just 35-40 minutes away from Tauranga and Whakatane. While we explored Whakatane during our Christmas holiday last year, this time our focus was solely on conquering the summit of Mt Maunganui.

Take a moment to appreciate the heavenly sunset captured in the video. Allow yourself to immerse in its beauty!

The following day led us to Mt Maunganui beach, with my ultimate goal being to reach the top of Mt Maunganui itself. You can spot the gorgeous Mt Maunganui beach in one of the pictures.

As shown in the video, there are two tracks - the right-hand side leads to the base track which is an easier route leading to Pilot Bay. However, it doesn't take you to the summit of Mauao.

On the left-hand side, a steeper track leads to the summit of Mauao, which is also the peak of Mt Maunganui!

Initially, we started with the easy track, covering around half of it, as we had two kids with us. Later, I ventured onto the steep track, spending around 30 minutes to reach the summit of Mt Maunganui.

The videos you see are from the base track, and the views are equally stunning, aren't they?

Climbing the first set of stairs on the steep route reveals a breathtaking view of Mt Maunganui beach. Even though fatigue set in and I debated stopping, that wasn't my goal! I pushed ahead, and with each step, the view grew more spectacular.

This part of the track is visible from Mt Maunganui beach and is notably the easiest stretch. No steps and no steep inclines. Here's a sneak peek of the steep steps you'll encounter.

And finally, I reached the summit of Mauao on Mt Maunganui! The views from up here are absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy the remainder of the video, dear friends. You might notice my daughter wanting to share her voice too, which you'll hear a bit later.

Hello friends! Our time at Mt Maunganui Beach was simply wonderful. Building sandcastles, leaping through the sand with my sister - it was an absolute blast. And what's a beach day without indulging in some scrumptious fish and chips? Tauranga treated us to a marvelous day.
