Discover the Northern West Coast from Carters Beach, Westport

Welcome to Carters Beach Top 10 Holiday Park (previously the Seal Colony Top 10 Holiday Park), on the beautiful Northern West Coast of New Zealand's South Island. This area has a mild climate and a relaxed atmosphere. Being an ideal New Zealand holiday destination all year round. We offer a range of accommodation choices, whatever your style, just 4km from Westport township.

Westport, the northern gateway to the West Coast. Which offers each visitor an abundance of breath taking scenery, from rainforest walks to picturesque coastal drives, including the famous Buller Gorge, Cape Foulwind Seal Colony, and the 30-million-year old limestone formations at Punakaiki.

Carters Beach Top 10 Holiday Park, Westport is an ideal base to explore the region's attractions, including historic mining towns, cycle trails, walks, or the many adventure tourism pursuits from West Coast surfing, white water rafting, jet boating, caving and horse trekking. Base yourself here to visit the Oparara Basin's caves, limestone arches and mirrored tarn.

While at Carters Beach, relax at the beach, go for a swim, but don't miss one of Carters Beach's colourful evening sunsets. Also, you can take in the views when visiting Donaldos cafe\bar\restaurant. Play a round of golf at Westport's friendly golf course (this green is hard to keep your eye on the ball with such scenic views).

We had a wonderful 1 night stay at our first Top 10 park. Yes it was $48 for 2 on a powered site but it was right by the beach, had a large and very well equipped kitchen, lovely big and sparkling clean ensuite bathrooms, large laundry facility costing $4 for a wash and the staff are lovely and helpful. It also had a dump station and water so for all those reasons it was perfect for us and worth every cent. Thanks guys! Newbie UK Jucy campers :)

Usual Top10 facilities available. Used the showers and washer/dryers. Easy stroll onto the beach across the road. Nice kitchen but no utensils or pans.

Top 10 parks are not the cheapest, but the standards are high and this one is no exception. The park is a large open area with a sealed parking area for powered motorhome sites - which we appreciated granted the rain. This layout does mean there's no privacy between but there was plenty of room. Facilities are clean and modern. There were two sets of toilets, one being family bathrooms with toilet/shower which was a nice touch. Walking distance to the beach and a cafe up the road that had a brilliant breakfast, and has a Top 10 discount also. Management were friendly and helpful, suggesting best time to see the seals the following morning (dodging the worst of the weather, and she was right!). It's a drive to the seals or Westport from here. A flushing stainless steel dump station was the final surprise as we departed.

camping basique pour un Top10 mais correct, équipement baignoire bb, cuisine, buanderie, douche chaude gratuite
ce qui a peut être baisseé notre appréciation est le fort vent et la pluie incessante, dommage
sinon, en bord d’océan, le coin pourrait être pas mal

In line with the going rate ($40 for 2 people unpowered site). Very nice facilities - well set up kitchen with gear, showers clean, grounds neat and tidy. Reception people lovely and welcoming. Internet slow in patches but reasonable compared with what we've experienced at other NZ parks (100mb free, paid for more). Right across from beach. Out of the Westport township.
