Model Answer 1:
The surrounding area of Mount Maunganui has a wonderful environment that is stunningly beautiful. The place is located in New Zealand, and it is locally known as "The Mount". This is a great area for people who live there. Besides, spending leisure hours there could always surprise you with new adventures. Despite being a place renowned for a great residential area, and various activities, like commercial, industrial and recreational ones, this is a delightful place with a lovely environment.

The white sandy beaches of this place invite travellers and locals alike. Besides, the mountains are also eye-refreshing sights to look at. The sheltered bay in the inner harbour is a great place for relaxation activities and when I had been there for the first time, I was awe-stricken about its serenity and harmony. Moreover, being a beach town, this city has everything an adventurous tourist can look for.

I went there for the first time two years ago, and instantly, fell in love with this place. I took part in surfing, boat riding and many other water sports which were both thrilling and new to me. I also enjoyed the natural views of the locality and I must mention that the people in this area were so great and hospitable. The tip of the peninsula mountain is another attractive place and many young people take the challenge to reach there just to enjoy the view and get some adrenaline pump.

This is a beautiful place, without any doubt, and you will never get bored being there. It appeared that peace, happiness and harmony are the three main ingredients of this place which really attracted me towards it. The calm breeze from the sea, the large lava dome, the delicious and exotic foods, friendly people, sandy beaches, and stunning scenery have made this place so beautiful.

The monasteries are made with colourful frescos. They have been surviving since the 15th century and are described in many stories. The surrounding localities near the churches are magnificent and beautiful.
