All of our Waikawa Beach holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking. Looking for a quiet, out of the way beach holiday? The charming coastal village of Waikawa Beach may be just what you’re looking for. Located in Horowhenua, you can find Waikawa Beach off SH1 at Manakau. Life here is centered on the beach and great outdoors. Take a swim, have a spin on your bicycle, or try your luck at fishing in either the river or the sea. You can watch the sun rise over the Tararuas peaks and catch views of Ruapehu, Tapuae-O-Uenuku and Taranaki during long early morning beach walks.
