Very congested even in October
Arrived at 18
30 one space left. Mirror to mirror parking.. beautiful on shore parking
2 very clean toilets with hot water. Very windy during the night. Glad we were packed like sardines.
Very few spots unless you want to camp illegally. And it is not cool to do that!
Arrive early to get s spot here. It pays off to wait for the "normal cars" to depart as the beach is popular at day too.
The toilets are okay and are open 24/7.
Stayed here for two nights

Such a great spot if you are getting or arriving from an early ferry! About 12 free spots available, toilets are clean and have hot water. Can be windy at this spot but bearable. Beautiful sunset!
We were there after night arrival of our ferry. In order to find a parking place only for half night. On arrival there we saw there already parking camper vans and we parked beside them on a parking place. In the morning a friendly man wakes u sup and advised us to leave cause only car parking allowed on our ground. We hadn't seen it. Finally it's a good spot but think Wellington could give more camper vans sites there cause in the night I think no cars parking there so much.
Pls check connected pictures in this app.. think the map does not fit to the latitude. . Thx

Quite place with Great view, just in front of the beach, very windy at night. Public toilet with hot water which is perfect for us, definitely a free camper side for campervan (5 of us, large campervan).
Paeceful place, 2 toilets available 24h and clean !
You can sleep with the sound of waves.
From here you can see ferries cross to south island and beautiful mountains in background.
Great location but really small spots so we moved on.
Great view of the ocean. The waves were crashing up against the rocks making it nice to fall asleep to. The washrooms were very nice. Water tap was located just outside of the washrooms.
Only about 10 pitches and parked so close together we couldn’t open all doors. Toilets open 24hours. Stony beach not easy to walk on. Take coast road to town... picturesque drive. Very very windy night... thought we’d lose our roof covers!
Great free spot with wonderful views!! Yes, it’s a parking lot area but right on the water, with great landscape, flushing toilets, potable water and walking tracks right on site. Be sure to get there early-ish though as spots are limited.
We stayed the night before taking the ferry and it was easy access in the morning.

It is a stunning spot with a great view of the south island. It seems to be very popular and can be difficult to park at. It was basically full when we got there at 4 pm. Apart from that it is great and even has accessibility to drinking water and two public toilets.

Great place!! Amazing views and amazing location!! Only for selfcontained though there is 24hours open public toilet (clean and modern). Perfect place to stay for free if visiting Wellington. Take a walk on the beach and do the road on the coast to
come back to the city. Arrive early tomsecure your spot. It was full by 20:00
This site was fantastic! We arrived at 5pm and there were only 3 spots left so you must arrive early! The walks are great, especially the one through the valleys that follows the stream - not for the faint hearted!
