Ahipara is a small town near the northernmost point of New Zealand's North Island, with a population of not much over 1,000.
Fishing is often at the top of the agenda for Ahipara visitors and locals, and you can go on a fishing charter to enjoy some of the best fishing spots in the country. Every year in February, the world's biggest snapper surf fishing contest is held at 90 mile beach which is just above Ahipara, so if you like snapper- get a camper and get up there!
Kaitaia Golf Course is also located in Ahipara, and offers stunning views over 90 mile beach.
Shipwreck bay just outside of the town is a popular surf spot, as is the beach directly in front of the town- you can even take lessons at Ahipara Surf School!
90 Mile Beach is a draw for tourists, and Ahipara is located very handy to it, at the southern end. This makes it a handy base for anyone wishing to explore the Far North. Ahipara Holiday Park offers powered sites from NZ$32-40 for 2 people, depending on the time of year.
