Papamoa Lifestyle

Papamoa Lifestyle

Papamoa, and the greater Tauranga area, is an invigorating and stunningly beautiful location which has caught the attention of many Kiwis looking to call it home. It offers a fresh and vibrant community, along with the many advantages of coastal living. The developers of Terrace Views are committed to honouring this wonderful sense of community and its relaxed seaside environment.

Papamoa is Tauranga’s largest suburb with a population of more than 20,000. It is located around 16 kilometres of white, sandy beach that stretches from its boundary with Mount Maunganui to the Kaituna River in the east.

It is also one of the fastest growing areas in New Zealand which is attributed to the increase in popularity of coastal communities, affordable housing, and close proximity to Tauranga and local shopping developments.
