Description: 

Opunake Beach is a nice beach break on a sandy beach. A nice shaped wave, with both right and left handers. Sometimes a long right hander can be working right across the beach. The outer reefs on the rocky points can be surfed if the conditions are right. Good for beginners to experts. It can get busy in summer, so watch out for swimmers.

Directions: 
From Opunake, when on the main road State Highway 45, take Havelock Street South West towards the beach, then turn left onto Beach Road, down the hill to the beach. Find a park and hit the surf. Opunake Beach Holiday Park is on Beach Road right on the beach.
