Ohope is simply New Zealand’s best beach. Situated 6km from Whakatane it is one of the safest beaches in NZ – white ocean beach one side harbour on the other. 11 km of white sand with breathtaking views out to an active volcanoe White Island (Whakaari) and Whale island (Moutohora). Sweeping views out to East Cape. The area offers plenty to do and total relaxation in a pristine beach environment.
