Stunning views and a really nice bay to swim in.

This bay is a lot quieter than the larger Urupukapuka bay campsite, which was full of jetskis when we visited during the school holidays, however is probably a 20 min walk with a couple of hills from Otehei Bay where the ferry comes in.

The site is well maintained and there is a very refreshing cold shower to get clean after the saltwater. Lots of shade around the edge of the campground when needed.

Needs booking on DOC website.
