Te Haruhi Bay campsite is located at the tip of Whangaparaoa Peninsula. It's a stunning spot with a bit of character provided by its resident peacocks.

Native birds have migrated from nearby Tiritiri Matangi Island sanctuary and a number of walks with good views are on offer.

A maximum of seven consecutive nights is allowed here.

For that price (6 NZD p.p.) you get excellent facilities in a beautiful setting. Great day-walks around the peninsula. Good opportunities to swim in the sea since it's very still here. Great view across the bay to Auckland skyline. Self-contained area and camping area (incl. vehicles). Showers and dump point available at camping ground.
Beware: On weekends it can be very crowded since it's so close to the city. And it can get quite windy.

We're two adults with an SCC and paid $12, good price considering! Campground is clean, very nice and very neat. If you walk 200m you're at the beach with a very beautiful view. Toilets are clean. BBQ available. No showers. One special thing about this campground: it has a gate with a numeric lock, and you won't get the code - and thus won't enter - until your creditcard payment is taken care of. It took us 30 min. and multiple phone calls.

+ Very friendly rangers about if you need any help,
+ Running water,

+ Friendly peacocks about.
Would and might stay here again when back that way

North of Auckland. Only cold showers and no facilties - but the view, the hills and the ocean make up for it!

A really nice site run by Auckland Council. Lots of space, clean loos and cold showers. Nice walks and nice beach. Lots of interesting birdlife. Great place for first night(s) if you are landing in Auckland. Be sure and visit the Titiri bird Island which departs from the next bay round.
