4WD beach with space to park for the night. Be careful to not get stuck as I did.

Minimal space before the beach so don't go expecting it to be 'setup' for 2WD freedom campers. Would be a nice spot for more capable setups.

Long line fishing spot as it has an under tow current to carry out the line. Not sure if swimming is a good idea.

Premier arrêt pour nous en NZ. Endroit assez sympa, juste en bord de mer.
Un peu hésitant pour une première nuit mais vu qu'il y avait des camping cars locaux sur place on s'est arrêté.
On a bien fait puisqu'au réveil, nous avons vu un lion de mer (bien aidé par la voisine qui a tapé à la porte pour nous le signaler même si on a eu du mal à comprendre!!!)
