Beautiful Mount Maunganui! I absolutely love this place.
I've been so busy with work for the past 6 months so couldn't wait to get a long weekend off and go for a little trip up North.
The Mount is such a fun place, so different compared to Gisborne. There's so much to do, so much to see. They have beautiful shops here and lovely cafe's with the best coffee & healthy food. Lots of young people and a very relaxed & fun vibe.
The first thing you have to do is go for a walk up the mountain. It takes about 30 min to walk up and you have the most amazing view! Once you get back down go for a swim in the ocean and get a smoothie bowl from Soulboul. They are amazing!
I had the Bali Bowl which has pink dragonfruit, strawberries, banana, organic maca, vegan vanilla protein and coconut cream in it topped with some yummy gluten free granola!
It's been such a treat to be able to spend some time here, wish we could stay longer. Can't wait to go back to this place!
