A really lovely quiet camp. Nice & clean, great powerful showers. Tea towels, dishcloths & washing up liquid provided in kitchen! Very pretty at night with strategically placed coloured lights. And lovely friendly staff. Definitely coming back.

We haven’t been able to make a reservation so we just stopped at the different Campsites around Waihi to ask if they have a pitch available. At TOP10 Waihi Beach they haven‘t had something but they looked this site up in their computer which is only 5 mins away and also a TOP10 campground. We were told they still have some pitches for us so we came here. First we were told rudely there is no free space available. After saying that we were told there is, the lady looked into her computer for a while and then told us, she can not give us a space because others asked earlier and she turned them around so it would be unfair. I was a bit puzzled and double-checked if there is space or not and then she said there is but that it is reserved for other purposes and she can‘t help us. Still don‘t know what went wrong but felt as if we didn‘t fit into this campsites face checks. Rude.

Beachaven holiday park is hubby and my new home from home! Can't recommend enough.
Situated minutes walk from the beach which is stunning summer or winter! Summer its swims and breath taking views without being crammed, winter and it's a georgous walks and spectacular views.
The holiday park has some of the friendliest helpful service we've experienced on our travels and adds to the relaxed welcoming atmosphere. The facilities are immaculate ( i mean seriously immaculate!)and user friendly, with rules around visitors and noise which means a mix of family friendly and peaceful. It's a great mix of families, camper Van's etc.
Booking is super easy and our last trip we rang to let them know we'd be late and on arrival ( it was dark and cold winters evening ) we arrived to our studio, subtle lights on and toasty warm for us. Really appreciated that touch of care.

Within walking distance of the village/town hub which has a variety of cafes, boutique stores( Daisy Chain is my favorite). You can stop off at the beach restaurant/bar which is more big city prices/fare or our wee slice of Kiwiana La Vie En Rose for well priced drinks and simple tasty fare at $10 a plate/platter. Not flash but really cruisey and relaxed atmosphere which makes the trip feel more Kiwiana.

We ended up staying 3 nights, we had initially booked 2 nights then added another. To our utter joy one of the staff popped in to tell us our extra night was free.

We will definitely be back!

Here at Beachhaven Camping it is super quiet. Totally relaxed. Close to the beach. Sufficient
Number of showers and toilets. Clean and tidy. Very nice people. Dog-friendly. Small and cozy. Not very busy (February). We stayed directly one night longer to just relax on the beach and clean the camper again ❤

Its clean and 100 meters from the beach. The plots are spacious and the facilities are really good. Big disappointment were the all year round permanent campervans that make the place look ‘shabby’. And it is sort of a square compound.

Lovely clean, well-lit park with good facilities. Short walk to the stunning beach, reserve and Flatwhite Cafe. Staff were extremely helpful. As is typical for some Top 10’s, it is a bit pricey and the sites are just that bit too small for larger motorhomes - they fit but they are all pretty close together. Suppose though you are there to spend your time at the beach, not in the van. Recommended.
