Amazing long, very long beach, very safe to swim, beautiful views and easy to park, close to everything
We stayed at top 10 camp site, but if. You are up for freedom camping there are 3 sites with motorhome dump sites to choose from.

Ohope beach would be the jewel of the Bay of Plenty. Lovely beach, great place to stay either camping or in a motel. Whakatane just over the hill, Rotorua an hour away. There is so much to do and see that you want to keep coming back.
Nice small town just over the hill from Whakatane. Beautiful, hot and sunny and a must to relax. Great fishing on your door step, swimming, walks, playgrounds for kids with flying fox, golf club, cafes, everything required. What more could you ask for? I normally hire a house when staying right on the beach front. Perfect!

For fishing the main beach is good for long lining... More
