Plenty of holiday destinations claim to offer the best of both worlds, but this expression has never been truer than for Taranaki. Situated on the central west coast of New Zealand's North Island, the region is equally suited to relaxation or adventure. The picturesque Mount Taranaki forms the centrepiece of the region, separating the rugged surf-friendly coast line from the lush inland environment. A trip up the mountain will provide ample opportunity for skiing or snowboarding, with an ample selection of activities no matter the season.
Kiwi Holiday Parks are a popular accommodation choice here, with two of them in and around the Taranaki area. They have a reputation for being incredibly well serviced yet affordable, providing comfortable accommodation for travellers of any budget. Here is some more detailed information on how you can make your stay in Taranaki unforgettable.
Opunake Beach Kiwi Holiday Park
This beach front holiday park has the ideal combination of privacy and accessibility that holidaymakers crave. Opunake Beach Kiwi Holiday Park is located just a stone's throw away from a beautiful, sheltered bay, and nestled amongst a collection of native New Zealand Pohutukawa trees.
Catering to groups of any kind, you can choose between a campsite, cabin, or fully self-contained unit. If you are travelling in a campervan or RV this is also the ideal place to set up camp.
Wireless internet is available throughout your stay, along with access to a BBQ area, laundry facilities and adventure playground. Most importantly, you will be ideally placed to enjoy the many wonders of the Taranaki region. If surfing, skiing or river rafting isn't your thing, you could explore the surrounding native forest, immerse yourself in the vibrant local art scene, or visit central New Plymouth for a bite to eat at one of the many eclectic cafes.
Castlecliff Seaside Holiday Park
This holiday park certainly lives up to its name. Only a short walk from the beach, you will have equal opportunities for swimming or surfing in the pristine waters of New Zealand's rugged west coast.
If you prefer more relaxing surroundings there is an onsite spa pool, sauna and swimming pool for your enjoyment during your stay. The refurbished facilities at Castlecliff also include a large, covered outdoor barbeque and kitchen area, and internet kiosk.
This Holiday Park is located in Wanganui, a coastal centre with a charming New Zealand flavour.
Walk the coastal walkway along the edge of Taranaki's stunning ocean vistas, or take a trip into the heart of the region by visiting the towering Mount Taranaki.
