Between the beach, river and National Park the Punakaiki Beach Camp is truly a paradise holiday destination. Whether staying in a cabin or powered/ non-powered site you can be sure to hear the ocean crashing and the birds singing. An ideal spot for a couple of nights stay. The camp is beside the beach with tracks going into the National park.
The camp is located 700m south of the Pancake Rocks under magnificent limestone cliffs. We have full kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities available. Hot showers included.

Beauty spot! Good clean bathrooms and kitchen, nice spots to pitch tents that are sheltered from wind. Within walking distance to Pancake Rocks and other activities. Great value, would stay here again and again!

HI Janelle, thanks heaps for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Will see you next time.
Schöner, direkt am Meer gelegener Platz. 22$/Person mit Strom.
Großzügige Plätze, Duschen und WCs top. Schöne Wanderungen ab dem Platz möglich
Amazing views from the peaks and close to the beach for a nice sunset.
The internet wasn't working really well.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
We really enjoyed this spot/location to campervan. Spaces are fairly large and the backdrop of the mountains with beach front access is great. The facilities aren't the cleanest (not dirty but not pristine) but it is right on the beach so sand is bound to get in. It felt much more like camping than some of the holiday parks which was more of the appeal to us. Showers included, you have to keep pushing the shower button but no fee so that's a plus. WiFi wasn't great but worked well around the kitchen/lounge area.

Very nice campground close to the beach, perfect to enjoy the sunset.
Nice facilities but definitely not enough showers when peak season!
Great campsite. Family friendly and excellent kitchen facilities. Good communal tables near the kitchen to share adventures but not noisy at night. Perfect location near the beach and various walking tracks and the river kayaks. Not enough showers for the size but overall really good.
One of the best camping locations I've stayed in NZ, stunning views on the cliffs, great beach and all the attractions very close. Unlimited wifi, clean facilities, all was really good.
Nice place with everything you need, not much choice here anyway. The place was full so you might need to book.
Awesome spot. Nice and clean. Wasnt crowded at all. The only negative was the price being $92 for a family of 6 in a motorhome!
Enough space. Free hot showers and the bathroom is not open air, don’t know why somebody wrote that...
Clean bathroom and kitchen.
Walking distance to pancake rocks.
Free wifi and again, I don’t know why someone said it’s not working because in the right spots it is working ;)
This camp on the beach has a very laid back vibe. Peaceful and set amongst trees. Good facilities and literally a 2 minute walk to watch the sun set on the beach
Location of this campsite is just amazing, right on the beach or as near as you can get! Facilities are a little dated but perfectly fine. Showers were fine although you had to constantly push the button to keep the water on and my wife had a luke warm shower, mine was fine😀. Located a few minutes drive from the Pancake rocks and blowholes which are just amazing. Within walking distance is a pub/bar that sells food that was quite good.
Great facilities and good spot to eat outside under cover. Lovely spot by the beach with a terrific view of the mountains behind. Easy access to Pancake Rocks, Truman Track and the Pororari River track. This is such a gorgeous town on the coast!
Facilities, pricing and location are as described in other reviews. WiFi simply doesn't work however, I specifically asked if it was working when I checked in and the member of staff brushed my question away with a "fine". Frustratingly this was not the case. Tried all over the campsite using multiple devices with zero success. Very annoying given that was the only reason we paid and didn't just freedom camp.
