Rapahoe Bay Holiday Park
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Amazing beach view sites! I would recommend this place to park up and relax for a few nights. Old-school look and feel to it so not the place for ultra modern or fussy people! Easy access to beach, 500m walk to the pub along the beach, friendly and helpful owners. This place has a "shabby-chic" vibe that takes me back to the good old days. Tonnes of character, I loved it.

Found this clean and nicely appointed place which is right on a good beach where at high tide the waves lap up to about 20m away. Economical pricing. Pool and volleyball court. Children playing happily but not nice to see the painter yell at people for going near him. Very good point to stop between Greymouth and Punakaiki. The Elizabeth Walk is a pleasant recreation. Nice environment in nearly all respects.

We stayed in a powered campervan site with views to the beach, close enough to hear the waves from the van. Although the facilities are not as good as some bigger parks, the location was so fantastic that it really didn't matter. Very reasonable price for the site. Don't forget to take insect repellent though!

Room Tip: Ask for a powered site.

If you like large, modern, sparkling-clean campsites, then don't come here. If on the other hand you like places that exude character, heritage, quirkiness and charm, then you're in luck because this place has got it in spades. Right next to the glorious beach, 5 mins walk from the pub and 45 mins walk to Elizabeth Point. Good old fashioned fun. We'll be back.

Found this site of joy because stopped near there at beach to take a picture. I booked in for one night. I stayed an extra one. There was a nicely hedged site for the car, toilets near by and a very strong pressure shower, well equipped kitchen, and everything a person travelling in a car who wants to sleep in it but also have everything she needs near by. There was good security with the lights. Good provisions for rubbish. Environment friendly. Very nice girl who lives Rapahoe did the Point Elisabeth walk with me. Very nice man who lives motor camp took me and couple from Colorado USA for a nice meal. Another man took me for boating in his water craft. So many friendly people there! I never see it so much in one place before. Even the second day with a showery weather the Rapahoe felt like home and warm.

Room Tip: The site 14, 15, 16, 17 ideal for a person in a car who wants to feel secure and private but can eas...

We stayed there for one amazing night. We have checked in at 7pm without booking, the reception was friendly to show us there were some beach view powered sites left, which we could see the sea from our camper van. There was an little path behind the bush to go to the beach by 30 seconds, nice sunset we had on the beach, enjoyed the amazing/ romantic time after a day long driving.

Room Tip: Just ask if they have the bay view site left, or if you stay in cabin, found the easy way to access...

We stayed at the park for only one night on the road south but we thought maybe we would have liked to stay a few days more. The beach in front of the park is just steps away and great for walking, bodysurfing, and sunsets. The kitchen was pretty well equipped. We did a great 45 min walk out to Point Elizabeth. The only downfall was that the manager was hard to find and not happy when we found her, we thought she needed a review of her people skills. We would still go back.
