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.
