Don't let the name of this place put you off. This campsite has no walking access and is one of the best kayak campsites in the park. Best if you time your arrival or departure with a mid to high tide to minimise a kayak drag along the sand. Toilet can get pretty smelly in peak season being the only downside to this really stunning spot.
Great beach, gorgeous view, little island in front, you can walk on it whilst lowtide.
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 😍
