After a late cooked breakfast at the B&B, we took the short drive to Mount Maunganui. From here we took the 3.8 km (return), 235 m ascent to the summit of Mount Maunganui. It's a difficult, steep climb but well worth it for the view.
After walking down, we stopped for lunch at The Oceanside cafe, where I had the lamb burger and DH had the fish and chips. Before taking the trip back to Auckland.
