Oakura Beach SurfingOakura Beach is located on Surf Highway 45, and often described as ‘Wet, Wild and Wicked’. Without doubt, Taranaki has the best surfing beaches in New Zealand.
Names like Stent Rd, Ahu Ahu Rd and The Graveyards are synonymous with New Zealand’s surfing community.
Highway 45 is New Zealand’s only dedicated surfing route, stretching its 105 km between New Plymouth and Hawera. Oakura Beach is a hot spot with awesome left and right handers.
The campsite breaks on a large swell and there are gap right handers and left hander breaks.
Even if you are not that confident on a board, you’ll surely enjoy watching all the action while staying with us. There are regular surfing championships and Life Saving competitions organised at Oakura Beach, NZ. Especially in the summertime, there is always something going on.
