Bowentown Beach Holiday Park

Hankering for some R&R close to Waihi’s spectacular beaches? Head to Bowentown Beach Holiday Park and Motel, for bay and ocean views in spa country central.

Splash among the shallows of sheltered Shelly Bay, cast a line into the waters or hit the summit overlooking ocean.


When you say that this park has water views, it really does have water views. Not only is it on the Bay of Plenty but it also on the spit opposite Matakana Island which shelters the Taraunga Harbour. There is water all around and some magical beaches too.

The on-site accommodation is bright and very beachy with a huge range to choose from, it all depends on how many are coming with you and your budget. When it comes to powered sites, there are around 170 on the park, with a mix of powered and unpowered. Now that’s a lot of sites.



Onsite facilities are amazing, they are so good looking and so usable. The barbecue area is by the camp kitchen and has a water feature, you would be forgiven for thinking that you are in a delightful al fresco bistro! The camp kitchen is outstanding, and there is plenty of room in the dining area too. Add in a TV, library and games room and you have just about everything you need.

For a bit of fun, when you’re not on the fabulous beaches in the area, there are pedal carts to hire, and an internet and WiFi hot spot zone. When it is time for some downtime, why not book in for a massage and beauty treatment? If that doesn’t entice you, perhaps a spa will!  A little bit of spoiling is perfect on holidays.

The Bowentown Beach Holiday Park and Motel is a great place to stay, while you enjoy discovering some of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand.


At Bowentown Beach Holiday Park, you can’t get any closer to the Bowentown Headlands, where the Pacific Ocean from Anzac Bay. Drive the ascent or follow the path next to the caravan park for eye-to-eyes views, cliffs and caves.

On Sundays in peak season, a 10-minute drive from a camp, enjoy quaint gardens and Devonshire afternoon tea at historic Athenree Homestead.

Further afield, strike it rich at Waihi Gold Mine Tours then marvel at Owharoa Falls, a few minutes’ drive further.
