If you have family, the two playgrounds at Ohope are as good as any that we found in NZ. The playground by the shops also has huge trees nearby which are great for climbing. While to other down the beach has a fantastic flying fox. Both are right on the beach so its easy to take a quick swim. Fantastic spot.
