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.
Totally agree with Lia previous review - thanks as it helped when we were looking around. This one is worth staying for location to the fabulous west coast and the amazing pancake rocks up the road. Wifi is abit hit and miss but site 21/1/2 seem better (we were in 2) not very level sites thou for a camper. Tavern just on the corner was fabulous for a drink, back garden area, game of pool and they do take away alcohol sales
This caravan park is located on the outskirts of Punakaiki, within walking distance of the Tavern. The laundry facilities were good, the bathrooms were clean with plenty of hot water for the showers. It was possibly a little overpriced for the low season, but we were happy. Nice, big campground with powered or unpowered sites.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Lovely location right by the beach. $44 for powered site for 2 people. Bit blustery when we were there but it is early September! Powered camper pitches right by the tree line to the beach.
Free hot showers, they do go off every 20-30 seconds but you can just hit the button as many times as you need. Reading previous reviews; yes the actual toilet area has no outer door but the toilet stalls and the shower stalls each have individual doors.
Kitchen is a good setup and the picnic tables and odd sofas are nice outside.
WiFi actually worked perfectly for both of us in the camper itself and we were parked by the beach in spot number 1, might have been a coincidence as it’s off season and only 4 other campers here, but fine by us!
Overall great little campsite to break up the journey down the west coast.
Schöner, direkt am Meer gelegener Platz. 22$/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.
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
