"The Mount" is the colloquial name for Mount Maunganui, a beach town that occupies a peninsula at the southern end of Tauranga Harbour. The peninsula is actually a huge sandbar, with a sheltered bay on the inner harbour side and a magnificent surf beach on the ocean side.

At the very tip of the peninsula is the dormant volcano, known as Maunganui, or Mauao, which rises to 230 metres above sea level.
