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).

    As you’d expect from a top ten it is spotless with great facilities.

    Also fab location near dog friendly beach. They are dog tolerant. Not dog friendly. Probably because they are cat people. But dog owners are prepared to pay the higher prices to be near the dog beach. No dog water bowls. No interest in making it a good stay for your dog too. If we didn’t have a dog I wouldn’t be able to fault it.

    Great shower pressure.

    Free showers, but very small cubicles unless you use the shower/ toilet unisex combo.

    Best dump station for hygiene so far with soap and handbasin provided.

    The actual dump also had its own flush and a lid.

    Kitchen had detergent provided too.

    Would happily return here.

    $40 for 2 people unpowered.

    We stayed 5 nights and had a not so pleasant experience.

    The owner tried to give us some moral lessons twice instead of first asking herself what situation we were in. Her approach was quite aggressive and judgmental - inappropriate and insensitive to the given circumstances. She must have had bad experiences in the past and therefore takes things personally. That's a shame for the business. However, she can be friendly and helpful if you butter her up. The rest of the staff was nice. Facilities clean. Showers on one end, hot water did not work. Other end worked fine. No kitchen utilities provided - only for rent, which we found disappointing for a TOP 10 Holiday Park.

    Sadly, only booked one night when passing thru to Nelson.

    Clean, well maintained, new carpeting. Great kitchen facilities, toilets were clean and tidy. Close to the beach. Nothing to grumble about here!!

    Very good camp spot.

    Just across the road from the sandy beach (still a 4 minute walk). The showers and toilets in our block were fantastic. Great BBQ and kitchen area. Grass or concrete pads available. Great spot.

    Nice spot just across from the beach.

    Good facilities especially if you're travelling with small children.

    They charge for 3 years and up, we paid $53 for 2 adults, a 3 year old and an infant for 1 night non-powered

    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
