Thornton Beach is situated between Whakatane and Matata in the BOP. We are closer than Ohope for many visitors and offer a New Zealand beach holiday with heaps of fun for the whole family. We have many campsites available and various types of accommodation to suit all needs and budgets.

The views from our Holiday Park are spectacular. Whale Island is in front of you and New Zealand’s only live marine volcano White Island can be seen in the distance. The ocean beach stretches out at the parks doorstep and the Rangitaiki River is also metres away.

With panoramic sea views and known for its great catch, Thornton Beach is a fisherman’s haven. Land based anglers can surfcast towards Whale Island, or you can launch the boat at the boat ramp which is only 200m from the park and head out to sea.

Thornton Beach is lovely and quiet. But besides peace, tranquillity, safe swimming and great fishing, there are many more activities and attractions in the area of Thornton Beach Holiday Park.

Our comfortable and spacious 2-storey Park Motel is a fantastic choice of accommodation for a great beach holiday with the family. 

There is a nice deck in front of the Park Motel that faces the ocean for you to relax with some drinks and nibbles and to take in the spectacular views. Outdoor furniture is provided. 

The panoramic sea views from the Park Motel are stunning as the unit is situated at a higher level than the campground itself. You look out to Whale Island and if you are up early enough, you can see the sun rise over the ocean in the most spectacular way. 

The Park Motel is 2 bedroom, it features a queen-size bed and closet in the master bedroom downstairs. Another queen-size bed plus a single bed can be found in the bedroom upstairs. A Port-A-Cot and Highchair are free of charge for our littlest campers.
