We end up here every year for an event and every stay as been perfect. The team running the park are friendly and helpful. Whether a camp site or a chalet, it's awesome. Will always recommend anyone who wishes to stay here.

Can not recommend this holiday park enough... We had our under 11's Rugby League team and families stay at Thornton Beach Holiday Park for a weekend and it was perfect on all levels - we will be back next year for sure!

Thank you Jackie for such a great review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay & caught plenty of fish! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We only had 2 nights, could have easily stayed 2 weeks! Very clean, tidy spacious accommodation. Beautiful, peaceful surrounds, great beach, lovely, well kept grounds. We had a great time and would definitely return.

About
Description
If your looking for somewhere just a little off the beaten track, but still within 5mins of great Country Cafes and shopping - Book a holiday with us and experience our award winning hospitality. Thornton More 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. Less
