Himatangi Beach Holiday Park

We are the ideal spot for campervans, tents and holiday-makers seeking a peaceful camp site with comfortable and tidy cabin accommodation.

We are a "stones throw" from the unique Himatangi Beach. You can even drive onto it and watch the sunset. The camp is only a couple of hundred metres from the main beach which is excellent for swimming, surfing and white-baiting. The beach is patrolled by the Palmerston North Surf Lifesaving Club over the summer months.

The local dairy, takeaway, cafe and Cosmopolitan Club are within easy walking distance of the Holiday Park.

An excellent white-baiting stream, children’s playground, tennis court, outdoor skate park, mini BMX track, mini putt, and bowling club are also close by.

We stopped at this ground on our way to Wellington because of previous reviews. Can't fault it. Friendly people, good facilities including a games room, and nice and quiet when we visited in November. We even ended up in the local pub drinking with the very friendly locals.

Very quiet village with a beach you can drive for miles on. Campsite is different! Have a walk around just to look at the creative caravan conversations! We could chose our pitch. Walk to beach... local shop serves delicious ice cream! Showers are good with music and colourful shower curtains! TV room and snooker room.

Great stop on the way north after the Wellington ferry. Extremely pleased with the friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the facilities and ability to bring a pet. Will definitely be back and highly recommend for camping and the bunk houses (cheap and cheerful). Am sure the other rooms are just as fantastic too!

Great place! Clean, friendly and close to the beach. Nice, free hot showers and great kitchen. Nice playground area with unique equipment. Quiet and peaceful, with birds chirping everywhere. Great hosts.

Loved this place. I stayed in the winter so it wasn't busy, but I can see how this would be a must stop in the summer. Facilities are modern and clean, and the owners were lovely. When I arrived I was taken around and shown where everything was. I didn't travel with any children, but there was a very cool looking playground which I could see being a hit with the kids if you are travelling with them.
You are given 1gb of free wifi which was very much appreciated.
Can't recommend this place enough.

Himatangi has the most friendly people se have met in New Zealand!! The man responsible from the camping ground helped us without doubt when we were in trouble. The camping is really easy to go in and the bathrooms are very very clean and all the installations are in excellent conditions. We were so happy to stayed here for one night as it's a good point to stop on our way to Wellington.

Ideal stop over on my way to Wellington, stayed 2 nights, facilities excellent everything very clean, showers clean and plentiful, hot water site also, clear reflection on the couple who run the site. Beach walking was fantastic shame about the vehicles but it's a privilege that the locals enjoy would highly recommend this site.
