Our Unique Location and Area

Nestled on the eastern shores of the Ohiwa Harbour in a sparsely populated segment of the Bay of Plenty lies a hidden gem, the settlement of Ohiwa.

Rolling hill country mixed with steep and dramatic native bush gullys and ridges frame the border of the harbour. On the eastern edge of the harbour an arm of this terrain runs down to meet the Pacific Ocean. It is at the base of this range tucked into a secluded corner that the Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park is located.

The Park itself has three distinct points of interest. To the north is the Pacific Ocean where the park enjoys uninterrupted access and views of Ohiwa Beach and the ocean.

To the West is the Ohiwa Harbour, safe swimming, Kayakingfishing and many more Activities are enjoyed here. Directly behind the park is 20 hectares of coastal native forest waiting to be explored. 

Within the 20 hectares of this native forest is the Ohiwa Nature Trail. The Ohiwa Nature Trail is one of the many Ohiwa Walking Tracks that are available within a short distance of the park. Flowering Pohutukawa trees and songbirds look over the park, it's bush walks, Ohiwa Nature Trail and the Glow Worm Grotto.

Your stay at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park gives you access to great body surfing and boogie boarding opportunities and a safe beach for swimming.  For a little family fun, why not put out a long line or try your hand at one of the many Fishing Options available, fly a kite or make sand castles.

If you're looking for a more relaxed stay here at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park, simply enjoy and afternoon of sunbathing, admiring the spectacular views out to White Island, an active volcano 50km due norrth of Ohiwa Beach, or take an evening stroll along Ohiwa's beautiful, sweeping white sand beach.

Ohiwa Beach is home to the endangered New Zealand Dotterel and rare Oyster Catchers whose eggs and chicks are well camouflaged to protect against predator attack.  Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park guests are welcome to view these birds, particularly in the nesting season from October to April, but we ask that you use the access ways provided to protect the birds in their natural habitat.
