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!

Excellent facilities, lots of warm showers, toilets, kitchen, instant boiling water etc friendly staff. Kids loved the paddle pool and the ice creams from the store 😊 awesome flat beach with nice rock pools as well! And beautiful sunsets 👌camp'sites decent sized even though we're pretty sure we received the smallest of the site still worked well for us as a family of 4 with room for more.

Amazing experience, as usual. Shelly & Julian you guys are just awesome! We always love coming and staying each year. And each time our group gets bigger and bigger just because your facilities, sites and friendly nature are second to none. Plus we brag a lot and get people to visit so then they want to stay too lol. See you again in 2023

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 !!!!
