Holiday at Waihi Beach
Waihi Beach is one of the safest beaches in the Bay of Plenty. With its white sand beach, swim friendly surf and so much to do in the surrounding area, Beachaven is a great base for families, friends and couples.
Plenty to see and do
Explore the local area with its interesting gold mining history, or walk the many great walkways. The fishing is good at Waihi Beach, as is the local fish and chip shop. So catch’em, or buy’em, and simply enjoy the sunshine.
A ‘freshen up’ at Beachaven
Since 2010, all sorts of upgrades have been made at Beachaven. New gardens have been added as well as a children’s playground. We’ve added an outdoor deck area to the kitchen, upgraded the laundry, and you’ll be pleased to find brand new showers and toilets. You can rest assured that there’ll be plenty more changes to come!
Safe friendly holiday park
Beachaven is a safe friendly holiday park set on four acres and offers a choice of accommodation types depending on how you wish to rest your head. Contact us to find out about planning a family holiday, weekend getaway, family reunion, trip to New Zealand or summer holiday. If you are a group of friends or large family we can accommodate up to 86 people in our cabins and motel units.
Enjoying camping? Planning on a summer holiday in the sun? We’ve got plenty of space for you to pitch your tent and if you plan to stay a while, bring your favourite appliances from home as we have powered sites.
Motorhome and caravan sites
Travelling around New Zealand in your campervan or with a caravan? We’d welcome you rolling up on our doorstep for a night or two.
Standard cabins, self contained units and park motels
If you are the sort of camper that prefers a comfortable bed over an air mattress, a fridge instead of a chilli bin, and electricity rather than a gas stove then you’d probably prefer our range of cabins, self contained units and park motels.
