Tauranga beach webcam

Just a repeat post (the first one here) - to remind my beloved blogger friends in the soon-to-be-chilly parts of the world, that you can get a dose of sun and sea, albeit in your nighttime, by clicking on to one of the Tauranga live webcams.  I went on a few minutes ago and I see there are some little yachts down at the marina ready to set sail.  That's our Mount Maunganui/ Mauo ('The Mount") in the background at the end of the sand spit.


  1. It looks beautiful there, sailing... sun.... wow!

    Okay so I actually woke up to snow this morning, early even for Minnesota. So I was wonderful to see Tauranga Harbour in all its splendor. Thanks!!

  2. That's right, rub it in, why don't you!?! Thank you very much! Sigh.....

  3. You are welcome, Sis.

    Are you talking about sunscreen Buggy? or do I detect the slightest note of irony in your comment? :-)

  4. Irony, sarcasm, either / or.

  5. Check out the hi-res Tauranga webcam at:

  6. Thanks 'takeabreak'. It is indeed nice and clear. But the other one is more fun because one can take the reins, so to speak.
