Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic place to visit, it is a great place to relax and enjoy the ocean and with fewer people than Ohope Beach is nice and quiet as well

This is a great walk to a secluded stone and shell beach, takes about 20 minutes each way. The beach is really cool with all the shells instead of the fine sand of Ohope beach.

One of New Zealand's most beautiful beaches - a must visit in summer. There's plenty to do and lovely shade from the sun to watch the waves.

We set off with a 6 and 8 year old, who fared far better with the steep climb. Not impossible, but for two chubby unfit people, was a bit tough.

We arrived at high tide, which isnt recommended, but even so, found a lot of enjoy at this beach.

The beach swing was a highlight, as was some of the treasures washed up. The waves were fun and not too dangerous and the MAGINIFICENT giant pohutukawa and birdsong were a joy to sit under and gaze out to sea.

I wasnt immediately wowed by it, but the longer I stayed, the more a feeling of peace and serenity washed over me. Theres something a bit special here

One of the prettiest beaches in the country. With the 15 minutes walk. There are various circuit walks too that take longer. Including a two hour walk to Whakatane. Awesome.

This is a short hike from the West End of Ohope Beach. All along the way are amazing views. There are a couple of steep parts, but nothing too trying. The beach is stunning. We were there when the waves were huge, so no way you could go near the water or the rocks. The beach has interesting shells and some tide pools. Worth the walk.

We visited this beach as part of our walk on the NgaTapuwae a Toi walk. There is a hill to climb getting to and from it from
Ohope Beach bit it is worth it. Stunning beach and outlook with beautiful clean water.

Wow what a beautiful spot, truly secluded and untouched. White sand and stone beach, crystal clear blue water, good depth for a relaxing swim.
To get there you walk about 20mins down hill and the walk back up is extreme so b prepared for that. I went with 2 other adults and a toddler which we carried in a backpack.
No dogs allowed.

The walk from Ohope Beach is not challenging, but a good amount of steps. The reward is the views and an empty expansive beach. Try to time for low tide if you can, but it’s amazing any time of day

This walk to Otarawaiere is through native bush with stunning views of Ohope Beach, white Island and the ocean. The beach it's self is very different than Ohope Beach as it is shelly unlike Ohope which is a sandy beach. It can only be accessed by walking. The short walk is from West End Ohope but there are longer walks that can be done.
