Amazing. Beautiful, by the sea in a wee village. Can stay for 21 days. Clean drop toilet, fish and chip/coffee/ice cream van adjacent. Lots of recycling bin. Dump station across the road (but it asks only to use in emergency due to rural location they need costly truck to empty it). Definitely recommend
Nice spot by the rocky shore, with the odd seal. Great food truck open on weekends. Look out for seals basking on the rocks on the short trip to the lighthouse. Large area to park overnight- further from the food truck if you want to avoid daytrippers picnicking. Clean toilets, recycling and rubbish bins available. Donate to iron maiden for upkeep of area.👍🏽

Fantastic place at the beach. Toilets and recycling bins are available, also a dump-station at the other side of the street and stunning sundowns! No water, no swimming possible, but nevertheless worth staying at least 1 night! 10 minutes to cape Palliser and the seals colony.
Lovely campsite right on the sea! The perfect place to spend a night when visiting Cape Palliser.

We arrived at the wrong time of year for the weather, but we liked this place anyhow just for the amount of seals in the near. For a real wild seal experience, this cannot be beaten. Take a drive up to the lighthouse and see them all relaxing on the grass and coastline. A lot of space on a grassy and gravel area. Drop toilets were the cleanest we’ve experience and many bins for waste and separate recycling.
Fantastic spot right by the ocean. A few bitey bugs but they seemed to go away after dusk. There's was a couple of little food trucks there we had lunch at. Great to wake up to the sound of waves and catch the seals down by the rocks in the morning. No water supply but really well kept drop loos and bins.
Superbe point avec possibilité de 10 à 15 camping car.
Vidange possible à 200m du point de camping libre et gratuit.
Great camp ! Toilet clean and friendly people.
Great free camping site
Visit the seals and enjoy the great sunset
Great spot. Beautiful view of the ocean. Short drive to the seal colony. Quite crowded in low season but it’s because it’s a lovely spot to stop.
I loved this spot! Beautiful, with a view to the South Island and gorgeous sunsets. Very quiet although the area was quite busy with freedom campers. Bring your own food, the shop was closed when we stayed - no local fish n chips for us unfortunately!
Idyllic spot to stay overnight.
Definitely one of our favourite places we stayed! Lovely scenery, right on the water, watch the sunset over the south island mountains, breathtaking! Five minute drive to seal colony and there is a TON of them, delicious fish and chip food cart, lady gave us free food as we were the last customer of the night, drop toilet clean, very relaxing stay.
