We stayed at Pohara Beach with our Campervan for two days. We were parked very close to the beach and went onto the beach the very first evening just as the sun was setting. The sunset was probably the most amazing sunset I have ever seen! I was torn between enjoying it with my eyes and capturing what I could...

Yes those walks on the beach capturing unbelievable sunsets are memorable to say the least. There is a great walk along a formed path at the end of the Holiday Park which finish's at the local golf course then returns on Pohara Beach, so hope you found it. Sounds like you found restaurant's, cafes, coffee roastery and little grocery store...

Thank you for allowing me and my dogs to stay the night as part of our nationwide walk for animal welfare organisations (The Longest Walk NZ). The facilities were great. The takeaway shop out the front was super handy and good. I loved going to sleep with the sounds of the water rolling in.

You're most welcome anytime and thank you for allowing us to be part of your great endeavour. Got to love the sound of those waves or gentle splash on Pohara Beach from your pillow after a walk on the beach. Thanks again.

We stayed 2 nights in February in a campervan. The camp was fantastic so clean staff very friendly. The beach was so close and the water was very warm. The sunset was amazing from the beach. It is such a good spot to explore the area we can't wait to go back again. The shop at camp had everything you...

We had two wonderful days at Pohara Beach! The Motel is directly located at the beach; well maintained and suitable for backpackers up to spoiled tourists. You can chose from rooms without ensuit up to bigger rooms with all facilities you need to have a comfortable stay. Harry & Anne-Marie from Switzerland

Although this is a very large beach camp, it wasn't too busy when we were there even though it was still summer, meaning the facilities which are very adequate were not overloaded, and with it's beautiful beach running right down beside the camp this is a lovely spot for unwinding.

Pleased you were to have a relaxing stay and sounds like you were able to unwind nicely. Yes its starting to slow down a bit now but the weather and water temps. are awesome for that afternoon swim. Thank you for visiting us.

Sadly, a larger unit was not available for us, so we had a week in a small mobile unit with and en-suite. For the price it was good, but we were cramped. The staff were outstanding; understanding and helpful.

Stayed in a lovely motel unit with our toddler for 5 nights. Toddler exhausted himself silly on the beach, accommodation was great, staff very friendly. Easy beach access and loads of space to run around the holiday park.

After the trip over the Takaka "Hill" its a great place to stop and rest. The camp or Holiday Park is very very clean and tidy with a very safe beach right at the door. There is a store on site for all that you may need including take aways and coffee. Lots of activities from here, and at least...

Thank you Ian for your amazing feedback, we have passed this on to our staff. We do agree there are plenty off things to see and do in the area such as Pupu springs, wainui falls and the fairwell spit and you should definitely spend some days around golden bay. We hope to see you back here again. Best regards,...

Thought the Cabin very small for the price. It was adequate for 2 for a night but it was clean and the shower good. Friends stayed at the Motel and thought that pretty expensive for the size too. It was nice that it was right on the sea front though and good views. A shame the sea was so far...
