You Don’t Have To Travel Far
For The Good Times

Tasman Holiday Parks Ohiwa Beach, Bay of Plenty, North Island

Enjoy 11 kilometres of golden sandy beach, perfect for body surfing, boogie boarding, surfing, beach fishing or walking.


You don’t have to go far from base to revel in the natural attractions that surround our holiday park. Walk in native forest reserves with vibrantly coloured pukekos and cheeky fantails, or bring your bikes and hit the local trails.


A leisurely 15-minute bush walk from the holiday park, visit after dark and enjoy Mother Nature’s own spectacular, energy-efficient light show.


A great way for the whole family to while away a few quiet hours, with 12 heritage rooms over three storeys displaying a vast collection of taonga (treasures) and stories of local Maori and Pakeha history.


The “lagoon” offers swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, bird watching, shellfish gathering … take your pick in this gorgeous safe harbour just steps from the park.


A tranquil walk through coastal forest with ancient pohutukawa trees clinging to the hillside. Who will be the first to spot a kereru (wood pigeon) or hear the beautiful song of the tui?



Check out New Zealand’s sunniest town and one of the first Maori settlements in NZ. From the middle of town, take the steps to Puketapu Lookout for great views over the river mouth and out to the heads. Enjoy lunch or dinner at the Whakatane Fishing Club.
