Opunake Beach Holiday Park - We're Right By The Beach!

Stunning West Coast Location
Opunake, a small town on the coast of Taranaki, New Zealand features stunning views of the coastline and the iconic mountain. Opunake Kiwi Holiday Park has a unique beachfront location in a sheltered sandy bay surrounded by crimson Pohutukawa trees – it’s a popular summer camping spot for families, couples and groups!

Accommodation Options:
We have a range of affordable accommodation including campsites, campervan or RV parks , cabins & self contained units. Opunake carries a 4 star Qualmark rating and Bronze Enviro Award offers modern communal amenities and wheelchair access. Enjoy the great kiwi outdoors in a beach environment where children can play safely at the adjacent playground, complete with a toddler’s paddling pool!

An array of activities for the whole family
Opunake is known as “the home of the big wave” and features an artificial surf reef. The famous Surf Highway 45 runs straight through this quirky coastal town where there are great surfing and fishing opportunities all year round! Opunake is a fantastic base to participate in one of the many colourful local events such as the Beach Carnival, Garden Festival, Yarn Bomb and AmeriCarna and why not give Claybird Shooting a go – good fun for all the family!

The Great Opunake Walkway is on our doorstep covering coastal and lake walking. Various shops, cafes, a local movie theatre and swimming pool are all within walking distance from the holiday park and Opunake's 18-hole golf course is just minutes away. Murals throughout the town celebrate local history and heritage walks will take you past some of the area’s most significant sites and scenery.

Julian and Shelly welcome you to stay with us here in beautiful Opunake – we're right by the beach!

Could not rate our stay and higher!! We were very last minute over new year, so had 1 night in our tent and then moved to a cabin.

travelled with 13 and 16 year kids, and we surfed, body surfed, great beach!! We are big black sand fans.

Facilities were impeccably clean, and had everything we needed. Met lots fun people and cleaners, and Shelly were all super friendly. Could not have been more accommodating, helpful with tips, phone numbers etc !!!!

Lovely little spot to have spent the time. The host could not have been friendlier upon our arrival and with suggestions for places to see whilst in town and onwards. The cabin was set up nicely, small for a family but adequate. Did not use the kitchen but it looked huge. Bathroom was clean with numerous showers and toilets, however the showers were on a timer which made it a bit painful.

we organized to arrive early in the morning and everything was very wet and grass spoungy but that was due to the very heavy rain we were greeted with friendly smiles and nothing was too much trouble. The facilities are very clean. The only thing we commented on and probably due to the very cold days the shower needs to be pressed every few seconds and as the shower block to quite open it was extreemly cold when showering. Fine in the summer. everything else was great.

The staff are friendly and accommodating, the massive facilities are incredibly well kept and clean. Easy layout of the grounds, and an awesome playpark for the little ones makes this a must-stay for families. Waking up to native birdsong was amazing! You can start the walks around Opunake right from the campground, the adorable town is just up the hill a few minutes walk for all your groceries. We will be back!
