Papamoa Hills Regional Park
If you like nature and views I recommend walking yourself up Papamoa Hills. You can see most of the Bay of Plenty and also look over to the Mount. Allow 45-60 mins for up and down (dependent on your fitness level and walking pace).
40 - 50 minute walk return to great views of the coast with rural views surrounding.
“The iconic local “Pap Tav” with a refresh makeover. Good bevies and grub. Nice outdoor spot and good for the kids too!”
“Great views over the Pacific Ocean from your table.. lunch and dinner options. a 5 minute drive away and good food and ambiance ”
“Really popular all round Shopping Centre 5 minutes away with a good selection of restaurants, food mall and Countdown.”
“If you are thinking to come to Tauranga, you must visit our main attraction "the mount". There are few walks around it base and you can climb to the top, to have a great panoramic view. The main beach is always a nice place to spend the day with a small walk to Leisure Island and with restaurants and Cafes across the road. Pilot bay is only 5 minutes walk from the main Beach and is an amazing place to watch the sunset while having fish and chips. ”
“Domain Road approx 7km. Two large Supermarkets (Countdown or Pak n Save), Banks and ATMs, variety store, Food Hall, tavern (Papamoa Tavern), Petrol Stations (“Z” full service) and Pak n Save (discount if you shop), plus a range of stores to meet daily needs.”
