Park on the western side of Sullivans Bay car park. From the car park walk up and over the hill along Mita Bay Loop Track (approx: 1 km / 45 - 60 minutes). Walk around the rocks two hours each side of low tide (approx: 800 metres 20 - 30 minutes).

Lovely little (although bigger than I expected) campground. A relatively if a little steep walk in - tonnes of water taps dotted around, the shelter belts are mature enough to do the job and every bay is beach front. The toilets (long drop) are clean but smelly. All in all a lovely spot and having to walk in makes it slightly more of an adventure for the kids.

Great, quiet! The camp site itself is rather narrow along the beach front. Fresh water, but we used a filter, and long drop toilets. Don't go around there for a beach, as it's a stony shoreline and drops off. I walked around the rocks with my son and we set up by the Manuka/Kanuka, bad idea as mozzies love that. But it was a nice experience for my boy. Got to see a local Morepork fly along the beach at dusk. Yes we will go back again. As it's quite easy for just a couple of nights.
