About
Description
If your looking for somewhere just a little off the beaten track, but still within 5mins of great Country Cafes and shopping - Book a holiday with us and experience our award winning hospitality. Thornton More Beach is situated between Whakatane and Matata in the BOP. We are closer than Ohope for many visitors and offer a New Zealand beach holiday with heaps of fun for the whole family. We have many campsites available and various types of accommodation to suit all needs and budgets. The views from our Holiday Park are spectacular. Whale Island is in front of you and New Zealand's only live marine volcano White Island can be seen in the distance. The ocean beach stretches out at the parks doorstep and the Rangitaiki River is also metres away. With panoramic sea views and known for its great catch, Thornton Beach is a fisherman's haven. Land based anglers can surfcast towards Whale Island, or you can launch the boat at the boat ramp which is only 200m from the park and head out to sea. Thornton Beach is lovely and quiet. But besides peace, tranquillity, safe swimming and great fishing, there are many more activities and attractions in the area of Thornton Beach Holiday Park. Less
