Beach is one of the safest surf beaches in the country.
The large tidal area means the coast does not drop off steeply like
many other beaches and the large expanse of white sands at low tide
are a delight for walkers.
The best swimming can be found on the incoming tide during
the warm summer months of December to March.
Extra security for bathers can be found at Mahy reserve at the bottom
of Ohope hill where the volunteers and professional lifeguards are stationed
during the summer.
Lifeguards also patrol along the beach near the camping ground at port
Ohope. All Ohope
bathers appreciate the efforts of the Whakatane Surf Lifesaving Club.
A hot summers day in the warm water of Ohope Beach is a most relaxing
your sun umbrella, boogie boards and lots of sun block, as you will
burn quickly in most conditions.
Always watch the kids especially on boogie boards and
remember no one has ever drowned swimming between the flags at Ohope
