“Seaside town feeling....”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This beach is stunning! Long, long stretch of unspoiled sand and views. Even on a busy day there is plenty of space for solitude if that is what you are after.

This really is a place to stop and unwind if you are travelling further north. Lovely cafes across the road and nice restaurants, delightful place all over!

“Resort style 3 kilometre beach”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

One of the loveliest beaches I have ever walked on/swum from. Shallow low tide waters are sun warmed for much of the year... safe bathing: dog friendly.

“Great Stop on NZ Roadtrip”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

My husband were on our way from Auckland to Paihia (Bay of Islands) and wanted to stop in Orewa Beach. We ended up stopping at the holiday park because that was where our GPS routed us to. The holiday park was beautiful and directly off the beach with great views. It truly was a beautiful spot. We were there shortly after sunrise and there was lots of seashells and solitude. It would be a great spot for a picnic or overnight stay. There were walking trails both on the beach and off.

“A beautiful beach for everyone to share”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

A beautiful clean beach which is great for swimming. An ideal place for a family day out with picnic facilities and amenities, great playground for children and a shopping precinct just across the road. Super cafes, camping area, restaurants and motels.
