There is always something to do in Mount Maunganui - but if it’s a bit colder out there, or when you are in the mood for something else while staying at Capri on Pilot Bay, we are happy to give you a few suggestions for a day trip elsewhere. There is a lot more to the area than ‘just’ the Mount.
There are some great, award winning wineries to visit in the Bay of Plenty. Two of them are based in Tauranga, and only 30-minutes by car from Mount Maunganui. Morton Estate and Millsreef both often organise wine tastings and they are fantastic venues for a lunch and/or dinner with a difference.
Why not go to the Paengaroa Junction for a day? There is Kiwi 360, a great park where it is all about the fruit that is was once known as the Chinese gooseberry.
What about a visit to the Comvita Visitor Centre and bee fascinated with natural health and the magic of the honey bee? Spring Loaded Fun Park is another great attraction at the Junction.
All these popular attractions are just half an hour’s drive from Capri on Pilot Bay.
This is just a brief selection of what's on offer. If you are looking for something different, just ask the staff at Capri on Pilot Bay for some suggestions or check the brochure rack on the wall by the office for some ideas.
