The coastal city of Tauranga has many popular sandy beaches. Pilot Bay is one of the calmer, more shelter beach opposite Mount Maugnanui main beach. Perfect for families and swimmers. In the background on the right is the hundreds of boats at the various marinas around the Tauranga Harbour. This was taken from the Pilot Quay Parking lots at the north west end of the beach. Looking south east along The Mall. Hopefully next time I’m in the area I’ll have more time to get in the water.
