The Moetapu Bay Camping Ground is an awesome spot for boating, fishing, swimming and walking. Parking here is very limited and you have to walk 200m to the campsite from the road-end. No fires permitted at anytime.
Access to Moetapu Bay campsite is closed due to ongoing road repairs. Check the Marlborough District Council information map for any updates.First published on 22 March 2022. Last reviewed on 22 June 2022.

A wonderful spot with a stunning view on the queen Charlotte sounds and a little quiet bay to swim (water was warm for NZ). There are toilets and a water source, which did not seem drinkable (yellowish)... I'd advise to get water before arrival. You have to walk a steep track in the forest to access it so you definitely can't go there with a campervan.
There were 2 other tents, we were there end of Feb.
Really cool spots for tents, with good view. You have to walk 100m but totally worth it. Great change to be there alone.
The beach is great and really beautiful, with lots of birds singing all the time. We stayed for two nights, we were the only ones camping there and it was great. The second two other couples joined, one of them a bit noisy, but it was really wonderful experience anyway. There's a water source, which should be drinkable (at least we were told so by the friendly neighbour and we drank from it without boiling) and honesty box for money.
Nice and lovely spot on the coast, good sleep.
Very beautiful small beach. Toilets and water, 2 places for parking on the road.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
