Welcome to Ohope Beach Top 10 Holiday Park – a fantastic holiday destination in New Zealand’s scenic Bay of Plenty.

Our holiday park accommodation is located along Ohope Beach, with 11 kilometres of unbroken golden sand beach and spectacular views of White Island (Whakaari) and Whale Island (Moutohorā). Whakatane has the current Top Sunshine Hours and has won five out of the last six years! Ohope Beach is also consistently voted as New Zealand's best beach as well as one of the top beaches worldwide and don't forget that Whakatane is the Kiwi Capital of the world!

Ohope Beach Top 10 Holiday Park is a family orientated holiday park close to Whakatane, which offers options suitable for every budget. Choose from our one and two bedroom beach front apartments, motels, kitchen cabins, standard cabins, or camp in one of our powered or non-powered camp sites.

The Christmas period is very special at Ohope Beach Top 10 Holiday Park, and is when our fantastic Kids Club and onsite cafe come to life at our Bay of Plenty camping ground. Wifi is provided free of charge throughout the park.

Wonderfull place. Just in front of the beach (even if not visible from everywhere in the camp). The beach is very long and very nice. Camping very well organized and furnished. Lot of excellent amenities. Even if it is a big camping, it is very pleasant and peacefull (Winter but during NZ holidays). Large spaces. Very clean and very good follow up. During this special "covid-19 period" we have found in this camping (the only one we found with so much) a lot of stacks of dish towels and towels for unique usage and dedicated waste boxes + desinfectant solution bottles everywhere.
We would have loved to stay more . (french couple in campervan)

Must be one of the best holiday parks in New Zealand! Excellent well maintained and clean facilities. Fantastic location. We visited the park with our rental Maui motorhome and stayed 2 nights. Fantastic beach views from our motorhome. Will visit again.

Stayed here are peak of December camping. Best campground we’ve been to so far (and the flashiest too). Newly renovated kitchen facilities at the A Block. Industrial grade freezers and fridge and Weber BBQs.
Warning though, free ranging kids on bikes and scooters (without helmets) abound.

Ohope Beach TOP 10 Holiday Park responds:

Thanks Christine, appreciate your kind words about our Holiday Park. We do reinvest heavily into the park every year, hence the quality of the facility blocks. Yes, kids on bikes are out there. However, for some it's the only chance of riding bikes they get in a year. We want kids to be active and off their devices. Our job as well as fellow campers is to help educate kids about responsible riding i.e. wearing helmets, stick to the speed limits (walking pace) etc.. with these free ranging children around hopefully we can all keep them safe.

This is an awesome family holiday park! The facilities where amazing (although the shower timer exposed to the outside world was a huge let down). The location is beautiful and the park is very very well run. We stayed in the busiest time of the year and it was great to see security guard regularly wandering the camp keeping things in order. The holiday program for kids was amazing and varied and the open air movies great fun. Would definitely come back in years to come with my family.

Nice place, friendly staff. Toilet and showers (time limit 5 minutes) are clean. We had a cabin, basic but had everything you need to sleep and eat. Beautifully located at the beach.
Kitchen: has everything you need and shared fridge and bbq available (didn't use it, but looked spot on).
Wifi: 100mb free wifi per day.
Laundry: both wash and drying are 2 x $2
At this time of the year it was really quiet (nice), but at peak season I think it will be pretty busy here.

Thanks Malai for your review. Our park is perfectly positioned to visit White Island New Zealands only active volcano. We are beachfront with plenty of local attractions in the area and only 1 hour from Rotorua. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

After 3 weeks touring North Island this is the only site that we came back to for a second visit. The site is clean and the staff are very helpful. The pitches are metres from the sea and the view from the beach is second to none. There is a wee restaurant (Fishermans Wharf) about 15 minutes walk from the site and that is well worth a visit for an evening meal. We love this site.

If I could submit a 0, I would! Purchased a 2 night stay in a powered or non powered camping site from Grab one worth 68.00. Due to sickness with children could not make it. Rang and asked if the vouchers worth could be redeemed, not the deal itself as time had run out, Was told that due to high season change in rates I could not. Offered to pay high season rates if the money I had already spent be used in conjunction with a two day stay. Again 'no'. Most ETHICAL businesses that use Grab One still acknowledge the vouchers worth even if the deal has run out. You simply pay the balance, a form of credit you could say. I did not seek a refund only to use what I had already spent at the establishment and whatever the set rate was. The may just be within their legal rights to do this, but ethically I think it stinks. And so do my kids who were looking forward to going:( Thanks for nothing!
