not sure why you have to pay a premium for pitches near the sea as the is no view just a high hedge. Good facilities including a shop and take away. The fish and chips is recommended. Be warned no beach at high tide and once the sea recedes it goes for miles so no realistic hope of a swim... More

Thank you so much for your review and choosing one of our premium Beachside sites which are larger and extremely sheltered. Guests are given an option of sites and find sleeping next to the Beach in a sheltered position delightful. The tides come and go with hours of potential swim time available, where the incoming tide crosses the hot sand... More

This is a good place to stay if you're visiting Golden Bay, it's right on the beach front and is only a short drive to the township of Takaka in one direction or the Abel Tasman National Park in the other. I have a powered site in section 'C' which is on the beachfront but unfortunately only a very few... More

One of the best top 10 holiday parks we have stayed in. Facilities are great and very clean. We stayed in cabins which were excellent. Booked for 1 night but stars for 3! Beach setting is amazing and espresso boat in local Harbour is worth a visit. Highly recommended!

Have just spent a week at Pohara Holiday Park and will definitely be returning. We had a self contained unit right beside the beach and enjoyed every minute of it. Unit was serviced everyday with clean towels, rubbish etc. A little expensive but with the facilities,beach right outside and the Christmas holiday break ... compensates costs.

We only stayed here for one night as we were journeying on but wish we could have visited during the summer season. Usually lack of privacy in the Top 10 parks which is our main issue with them but otherwise, good amenities and the location is lovely. A store right next door which proved handy,
