Kia Orana Welcome to
WHANGARURU BEACH FRONT CAMP
Whangaruru Beachfront Camp is situated on the shores of charming Parutahi Bay just inside the entrance of the Whangaruru Harbour.
The harbour is a haven for boating, fishing and water sports while the more adventurous can enjoy the open sea and waves of Oakura Beach. The camp was originally ‘over the hill’ on a site at the north end of Oakura Bay until the present site was developed in 1993 and the camp was relocated to its present position on the beach front. Over the years the camp has been further developed and now has motel accommodation, cabins and 80 camp sites of which 43 are powered.
Many families spend their summer holidays here year after year. The beach is usually calm and very safe for swimming.
