Whangapoua Camping Ground


Great Barrier Island

The Whangapoua Camping Ground is set in farmland overlooking the Whangapoua estury and a popular surf beach. Great views.

An adventurers campsite, open to the elements and not hemmed it. On its day and into the sunset, it has the goods to be memorable.

There are rare nesting birds about during the summer, please keep your distance.

Ranking: 9/10

An open, out there, location close to the airstrip, on a tidal lagoon. It would also have to be one of the epic island surf breaks in NZ when it's on.
Nice warm swimming in the lagoon when the time comes in. Great sunsets. Big sky.
