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.

A great expanse of clean beach. Great for families and plenty of free parking close to the beach. Life guards at the swimming area

Plenty of parking and easy access to this fantastic 11klms sandy beach. Never crowded and brilliant for walking along or building sandcastles, or just lying in the sun. The sea has plenty of shallows for the children to play in and there are shops/ cafes near by if you get peckish

What a stunning beach with amazing shells and friendly locals! We stayed at the Freedom Camp at the West End of Ohope Beach and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was clean and tidy and peaceful. We have travelled around New Zealand several times and Ohope Beach is one of the nicest beaches we have been to! Thank you for keeing this place special.

Endless, flat beach with lots of access points. I love being at the sea, to hear the sound of the water. Beyond that, this beach is pretty average.

What a lovely beach with the sound of the waves crashing/rolling in - we'd not been here for over 25 years. Believe it's been voted one of NZ's best beaches - we can see why.
