For a fantastic fun and exciting day or two out whilst staying at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park - The Motu trails offers three unique trails (and the option of combining all of them if you have enough time).

The Dunes Trail

If you're after an easy bike ride / run day trip for yourself and the kids we recommend the "Dunes trail" section of Motu Trails.

The Dunes Trail is an easy (grade 2) trail that caters for cyclists, walkers and runners. It's great for children, with many places to access the beach.

The trail is undulating with easy gradients. The return journey can be comfortably ridden in half a day, with plenty of time to stop for a swim and a picnic along the way.

More advanced parts of the Motu Trails

The more advanced sections of the Motu Trails offer a 78 kms Motu Road Trail and the Pakiki Track 44 kms (20 kms of which offers advanced off road riding largely downhill tracks!)

If you are unable to bring your own bikes along, there are plenty of hire options and shuttles can be organized. Check out for more information or ask us here in our office.
