Very nice spot by the sea. Can get crowded daytime with the locals picnicking around. Tidy toilets, recycling bins and working dump station

Nice little beach front area on Ohope beach. Space for 6-10 campers/vans depending on the size and how nicely people park. Playground close by, 4 flush toilets (2 handicapped accessible stalls), dump station and fresh water. Showers on the beach front to rinse off at. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area.
Super popular area so get there early, if you show up at 4pm, you'll likely be out of luck.

Nice spot and very close to the sea. There are toilets, fresh water, a dumping station, a playground and a shower(open air). Minus 1* because there are some private cars which parking on the same place.

All you could possibly want in a free campsite: clean public toilets, great view and a cold shower (near the beach)

Good spot for freedom camping. Toilets nearby. Sadly, other campervans do not follow signage/rules. We found our campervan blocked in by extra campervans after 8pm. We stayed on a Friday night, the playground nearby was full of many loud children by morning. Fyi, if you are not keen on those sounds.

Good place, get in early to get a flat spot as there are some puddles in the area. Remember to bring dollar coins for the bbq.

What can you say about a free site right on the beach with clean toilets, water and a dump station. Our only issue was it didn’t stop raining.
