Beach access mats

With New Zealand’s first council-owned beach access mats, Tauranga is leading the way, helping everyone enjoy the beach.

The beach access mat is a portable rollout mat that creates a sturdy and visible access path to the beach. Anyone can use the matting, but it’s especially helpful for people who use wheelchairs, walkers, mobility scooters or strollers.

The first mat was trialled at Mount Maunganui Main Beach in December 2016 and was a huge success.

We’re exploring additional locations for beach mats. Current locations include:

  • 136 Marine Parade/Cutters Cove
  • Mount Main Beach (near Hopukiore, Mount Drury)

Accessible beach facilities and equipment

We have a range of accessible beach facilities and equipment available, including:

  • An accessible changing facility at Hopukiore – Mount Drury Reserve
  • Beach wheelchairs
  • The Trail Rider (an all-terrain wheelchair)
  • Accessible picnic tables 

Read more here on how to access these facilities

Other accessible beach equipment

Other organisations also have accessible equipment available for hire, including a beach buggy and beach chair. Bookings are required.
