Attention beachgoers…this Meditteranean-style centre in the heart of Papamoa, only 400 km from the beach, has family-friendly options aplenty. The Plaza’s food court is a relaxed spot for brekky, lunch or dinner. Choose from healthy options at Carve IT UP or Palm Beach Health, eat ethnic at Master Wok or New Shane A Punjab, or there’s family dining at Stars & Stripes.
If you’re heading back to the beach, there are takeaways at Pizza Hut. Also in the takeaway line, there’s a McDonald’s and McCafe, and the Drive Thru is open 24 hours. Want to keep the kids happy while you shop? visit Palm Beach Coffee Kiosk or Scoops Ice Cream for snacks or dessert. And for a social drink, visit Champions Bar or Rose & Thistle Tavern. The fully air conditioned centre has plenty of easy parking.
