Easy-going Opononi and nearby Omapere are places to live the beach life, catch a few fish and zoom down the giant dunes of the Hokianga.
Opononi and its twin settlement Omapere provide a slice of beachside living in the heart of the Hokianga. You’ll find a choice of places to stay, from motels and resort-style beachfront units to private holiday cottages that can be rented for almost any duration. A white sand beach stretches all the way to Opononi Wharf, where you can catch a water taxi to the giant sand dunes on the other side of the harbour. Dune surfing on boogie boards is a thrill that leaves you sandy but extremely satisfied. Fishing trips can also be arranged at the wharf. Opononi was made famous in the mid 1950s by the tame dolphin Opo, who used to let children ride on his back. Functional facts: Approx. population 480, i-SITE Visitor Centre, basic shopping.
