Katikati Naturist Park.
Mr & Mrs Steve report,
By the time of our second trip to New Zealand we
had realised that we enjoyed Mapua and the clothes optional experience
and wanted to try out a “proper naturist site”. Katikati is New
Zealand’s only naturist park and is a small but beautifully kept site
just near Tauranga in North Island.
Owners Kevin and Joan are clearly passionate about
the site and run it extremely well.
So Katikati became our first experience of living
as naturists and was absolutely delightful, it became quite strange to
have to find clothes to put on to go into town to do the shopping.
On this our latest trip we made Katikati our first
stop after arriving in New Zealand and spent 5 days there just unwinding
from jobs and the horrible conditions at home just before we left the
On our first trip there we used one of the kitchen
cabins and on return trips have both camped and used cabins.
Facilities at Katikati the site has a small
swimming pool, spa pools and sauna, also kitchens for campers and a TV
