Unique summer holiday location no longer a well-kept secret

While Ohiwa used to be a well-kept secret, these days it’s anything but. It’s one of the few places in New Zealand that offers everything you want in a Kiwi summer holiday. With nothing but nature at your doorstep, a holiday in Ohiwa is the perfect opportunity to switch off, escape daily stresses and reconnect with family and friends.

The reason Ohiwa is loved by so many is the striking scenery of the area. In designing our holiday park, it was a priority to preserve the natural beauty and enhance the views of surrounding bush and ocean.

With three points of interest, Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park has an unmatched uniqueness. To the north is the Pacific Ocean, to the west is Ohiwa Harbour and just behind the holiday park is 20 hectares of native forest.

Ocean swimming, harbour kayaking and bush walking are all in a day’s fun here at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park. Whether you’re up for a day of adventure or you’d prefer to simply bask in the sun, you have the freedom to have the kind of summer holiday that suits you.

Many of our summer guests come to Ohiwa every year. They know how busy it gets and how important it is not to leave things to the last minute. Most of our regular guests will have already booked their summer accommodation.

We have a wide range of accommodation options suited to families, large groups, couples and solo travellers. From motel-style accommodation to non-powered campsites, we truly have something for everyone.

When you book your accommodation, consider the kind of holiday you would like to have. Our self-contained accommodation options are ideal for travellers who’d like their own kitchen. Of course, guests are still welcome to use our communal areas anytime they like. Self-contained options include:

  • Park motels – full kitchen

  • Self-contained units – basic kitchen

  • Tourist flats – basic kitchen

We have fully equipped communal areas onsite for guests to use as they please. These areas are great for meeting like-minded travellers and many new friendships have been made around the communal barbecues. Accommodation options without a kitchen include:

  • Standard cabins

  • Powered and non-powered campsites

Onsite facilities will make your summer holiday a breeze

We have put a lot of thought into what facilities we provide here at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park. We want our guests to have the best possible summer holiday without worrying about where to cook a meal, where to find a clean bathroom or what to do if it rains while you’re on holiday.

We have two communal kitchen areas. Both kitchens are fully equipped with all cooking devices – ovens, stoves and microwaves. Adjacent to the main kitchen is a spacious dining area that visitors can enjoy together. As our holiday park has grown in size over the years, having two communal kitchen areas gives our guests space and choice.

Providing plenty of fun activities for the kids has always been a priority for us. This not only makes their holiday more memorable but it also offers a little relief for the parents! Our outdoor bouncy cushion is always a hit. Endless fun on a giant bouncy pillow is every kid’s dream. With the ability to hold numerous kids at a time, we have seen many friendships blossom on the bouncy cushion.

Our playground is always buzzing with the sound of laughter and excitement. It’s often the first place the kids will visit when they wake in the morning. With two slides, a swing set and a seesaw, the playground is a fun and safe spot for all kids at the holiday park.

We opened our new pool just last summer and it’ll be all ready to go this coming summer season. There is plenty of room for parents to sit and lounge by the pool as the kids play, and we’ve even installed a shaded toddler pool for the little ones. The pool area is safely fenced off in a lovely sheltered area of the park.

If it happens to rain on your visit to Ohiwa, don’t fret! We have a games room that will provide plenty of entertainment for all. With an air hockey table, a pool table, a TV and plenty of lounging space, rainy days are no problem here at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park.
