We stayed in Ohope for 4 nights in a great Airbnb with a view of the water and beach and loved it. We were right across from beach so we could go for walks on beach and runs through the cute little town. You can walk all the way over to Whatakane via Ohope beach. Highly recommend

Had a wonderful time on our family holiday so much for the kids to do with movie evening and the beach and pools, hydroslides and the mini putt. Throughly enjoyed our stay. Would love if the pools had a ladder to get out of the pool

I walk on this beautiful beach everyday with my old dog. The Ohope beach is 11km long. At the west end of the beach there is surfing and cafes. A clear and tidy beach. A safe family beach with plenty of beach area to play on and sit and read a book. Ohope has a great climate all year round.... More

This beach is quite stunning. Sweeping sand with nice surf able waves. Perfect for the beginner the day I was there!! We met a beautiful local family there who has four teen children. All surfing with huge smiles. This is New Zealand through and through. Stunning natural beauty unspoilt by the masses with a touch of beautiful local personality!!

We only had time for a short walk but wished we had allowed more time. Such a fabulous beach with wonderful views, and extremely quiet.

It is a great beach to relax on, not overly crowed, it is in some parts but you can easily find a nice spot to chill on. Rather shallow, it dose not just drop making it safe for young kids, but it is still a beach and you still need to be careful like any other beach. Friendly locals and... More
