The classic Kiwi beach holiday.
Family fun starts here.
Set on five landscaped hectares beside the sparkling Pacific Ocean and a sheltered harbour, our Ohiwa Beach holiday park offers the best of sea and bush.
The park is ideally situated with easy access to the towns and beaches of the eastern Bay of Plenty, and one of the great New Zealand road trips around the East Cape.
But you don’t have to travel far for the good times. It’s just a few steps from the park to the magnificent Ohiwa Beach where you can surf, swim, fish, walk or read a book beneath a pohutukawa tree.
Hire a kayak or paddleboard from reception and explore Ohiwa Harbour, or enjoy a walk in the coastal nature reserve adjoining the park.
Our Bay of Plenty holiday park has accommodation to suit any style, budget or family size.
Standard and Kitchen Cabins
Ranging from standard and kitchen cabins, to self contained units and tourist flats, we have cabins suitable for the budget backpackers, families or those traveling in groups.
Park Motels and Tourist Flats
Each park motel is designed to provide maximum light and spacious living with easy indoor/outdoor flow onto balconies overlooking stunning Ohiwa beach and the Pacific Ocean. Please note: only service dogs are allowed in cabins.
Caravans and Camp Sites
Enjoy large beach front camping areas, or elevated campsites with breathtaking beach and ocean views. Our sites are pet-friendly from 1 Feb – 20 Dec (service dogs are allowed year-round).
The Tasman Holiday Parks promise.
Moutohorā/Whale Island is a wildlife sanctuary for rare birds, seals and reptiles. Half- and full-day tours leave from Whakatane. Enjoy close encounters with geckos and tuataras and dig your own private hot pool in the sand at Sulphur Bay beach.
