Take State Highway 3 and turnoff 1km north of Whanganui, opposite the Caltex Service Station, and follow the road for 11kms. The turn-off to Kai Iwi Beach is well signed and the Holiday Park entry is on the left 100 metres from the turn-off.


"My daughter, a friend from Italy and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Mowhanau Holiday Park last weekend.

The accommodation was spacious, comfortable and provided everything we needed. The other facilities in the Park were more than adequate and the setting is magnificent.

We'll be back."
