Whangateau Holiday Park is a tranquil award-winning waterfront campground ideal for family holidays in a tent or caravan, or as a restful stopover on your campervan or motor home adventure on the Twin Coast Discovery Highway.

The park is situated on Whangateau Harbour, east of Warkworth and near Leigh in the Matakana Coast area. It has more than 80 waterfront and standard powered sites, and a number of cabins, units and onsite caravans – all great value for money. Immaculately clean facilities and boat launching at high tide let you enjoy the surroundings, while your hosts Bridget and Stan help ensure that your holiday experience is everything you would expect and more.

Stay at Whangateau and enjoy safe swimming and everything that the Matakana and Kowhai Coast area has to offer: the white sand of Omaha Beach, snorkelling and diving in the pristine waters of the Goat Island marine reserve, historic Kawau Island in the Hauraki Gulf, bountiful fishing, sailing and the attractions of Point Wells, Leigh, Pakiri and Matheson Bay, including wine tasting, golf and all kinds of water sports.
