5 spots back onto a stream with some tree cover. Quiet & across the street from Police Station. Short walk to the main street and 2 minute walk to public washrooms which were open late (maybe 24 hours?) and cleaned overnight. Nice & easy stopover for one or two nights! FYI these spots fill up fast.

Lovely little spot opposite a police station. Felt pretty secure knowing the police were opposite, kept peace of mind. Grass area next to a stream with a picnic bench, pretty relaxing. It is next to a ‘main’ road. But not much traffic going past. Toilets a little walk away and closed in the night. Clean and open fairly early. Beautiful sunset. Not so many places, so get there before the evening time.

This is a nice spot right by a little stream. It wasn’t busy when we got there but there is only a small number of spots available, so it might be busy in Dec and Jan. The short walk to the public toilets is fine and it’s great to freshen up there. Coromandel Town is a cute place and they have amazing coffee at the cafe on the right side of the supermarket.

Parking opposite the police station won’t be everyone’s idea of a great location and being just off the road and it sounds like a no-no, however we found it to be fine. There’s a picnic bench beside the stream to the rear of the carpark, and clean public toilets a short walk away (closed at night). The town has a great timeless feeling and sir choice of eating places, from local sea food to Thai, and several bars to quench your thirst. Perfect for one night stop to explore the town.

It was okay for a night. Not too noisy over the night. Public toilet was okay.

The river is nice to watch but the road is just next to you. 4 places, only us this night. Toilets are a 1 minute walk but too bad, they close during the night.
It's not the best spot but enough for one night.
