Kina Beach


Kina Beach Reserve is an awesome spot next to the water. It is split into two: a day area, and a camping area. It is very tidy and organised and has toilets, recycling, taps and BBQ areas all surrounded by a large grassy area and trees.

The reserve is found on the way to the golf course, past vineyards. It is also close to a wicked berry picking spot off the Ruby Bay Highway and has a corner store nearby.

Great little spot, if you get there early enough you can get a beachfront spot. Picnic tables on the beach, 2 toilets blocks (long drop but ok), water for washing dishes and brushing teeth, and a library of lost books looking for love. $5 pppn is an absolute bargain, loved it thanks guys! Newbie UK Jucy campers :)

Fantastic find. We stayed twice it was so good. Loos were clean.
Drinking water treated to high standards.

For the price 10 out of 10.

There is separate camping for tents across the small stream. Away from the vans and cars.
The lady is very friendly.

Great little hippy campsite and very cheap. Nice people running it but it does fill up quickly. Clean loos. Amazing for $5 pp. No Wi-fi. Wonderful beach and sunrise. Would definitely go back.

Nice place right on the beach basically. The panorama ist stunning! Unfortunately it was quite crowded that night (including a gigantic purple Camping Bus partially blocking everyone’s view). Can’t say if it’s normal to be so full or if it was a coincidence because the weather was about to get quite bad and everyone looked for a place to stay in the area.

Nevertheless there was a place to do dishwashing (no light, bring something) as well as a shared library and two quite simple toilets.

If you can, try to come not too late because there are only 6-7 places with excellent view over the bay. Collect shells on the beach!

NZD 10 for two per night.
