01Oct18. A car park by the beach. Toilets but not 24hr. Cold shower in open. Free!
9/10 for what it does. Nothing special but an ok place to keep costs down.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 75 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Right on the beach, but you can hide from the weather behind the parking lot wall. A quiet area during the winter, but it’s next to the boat club so it may not be so much in the summer! Great view across the bay.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Great relaxing place, really enjoyed the sound of the beach waves as you sleep through the night. Pretty shame that it’s only allowing camping 1 night only though.
A perfectly decent carpark site, quiet out of season. Relatively sheltered from quite strong prevailing winds. No light in the loo, and that horrible scratchy loo paper I remember from childhood. Take a head torch and some soft quilted for some home comfort.
Clean toilets. Cold shower available. Really nice restaurant/bar. We stayed one night and were the only ones there. The beach is beautiful and saw an amazing sunset. Ideal stopover.
Free, toilets, cold outdoor shower, nice restaurant, beautiful beach.
It's free and nice all the same, but it's it's also better, and free 2 minutes down the road at the Waikanae River Mouth. I would only stay here if the River Mouth is full.
