Thornton Beach near Whakatane is a great destination for a fantastic 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 right in front of you and New Zealand’s only live marine volcano White Island can be clearly seen in the distance. The ocean beach stretches out at your doorstep and the Rangitaiki River on the other side of our holiday park also offers great water sports opportunities.
Enjoying the spectacular panoramic sea views and known for its great catch, Thornton Beach is a fisherman’s haven. Land based anglers can fish towards Whale Island from the beach with a long rod. The Rangitaiki River also provides many great fishing spots and if you go out boating, you won’t be disappointed either!
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. Read more…
