Can my family highly recommend NRMA Ocean Beach Holiday Resort to your family?

Oh good!

We have stayed at NRMA Ocean Beach Resort & Holiday Park twice, both camping and at a spacious cabin and both times we had a ball.

Ocean Beach Holiday Park Umina is the most excellent place to stay with a group, friends or family, the kids have SO MUCH FUN all running around together. They need rules, and of course, how much freedom we parents allow them depends upon their age.

camping at Ocean Beach Holiday Park Umina

We camped with a gang from school, my daughter had just finished Year 6 and put herself in charge of the younger girls’ craft activities!

We stayed for three nights over a weekend in early December. The cost for camping was $150. The cabins are much more expensive, of course.

Umina Beach

One of the reasons that Ocean Beach Resort is the best Umina Beach holiday park is that it is genuinely beach front. It takes just a minute to walk from the park down to the beach.

Umina Beach holidays
There are several walkways from Ocean Beach Holiday Park down to Umina Beach itself.

Umina Beach is also great for swimming – the kids have swam off much faster than me and left me behind!

Umina beach is pretty sheltered close to the holiday park so it’s great for little kids

Highlights at Ocean Beach for families also include:

  • Adventure playground, basketball courts, half tennis courts
  • Kids activities on weekends and in school holidays
  • Beach wheelchair

A lovely expedition from Umina is to visit beautiful Pearl Beach, read all about Pearl Beach on our post here.

Another nearby seaside village worth visiting is gorgeous Patonga Beach.

Ocean Beach Holiday Park Umina is perhaps the best of all the NRMA resorts, and the most family friendly of all Umina Beach accommodation. We have loved our stays – which we paid for fully by ourselves – and will go back again, ideally with groups of friends again.  The kids have such a great time, and so do we adults… it can be really relaxing, even for us!
