Waipatiki Beach Holiday Park



NZ Lifestyle Magazine Group



Kererū, pīwakawaka, tūī and korimako almost outnumber the humans at this small holiday park at Waipatiki Beach. A beachside site 50 minutes from central Hastings, it has all the trappings of a Kiwi camping ground of yesteryear: self-contained cabins and powered and unpowered sites, ablution block, shared kitchen, living room and playground. The same families return every summer, enjoying the simplicity and nearby forest walks. The land and the campsite was bought by the Napier, Hastings and Hawke’s Bay Regional Councils in 2016. 498A Waipatiki Road, Tāngōio. (06) 836 6075, waipatikibeach.co.nz
