2 parks available in car park by cemetery, nothing special but does the job, car park gets very busy during the day. Ferry Landing Store across the road sells coffee & ice cream. 2 minute walk to toilets & ferry that goes over to Whitianga or walk back towards town & there’s a beautiful beach. Quiet at night.

2 paved spots in the corner of the parking lot. We enjoyed how quiet it was. Bathroom down the hill at the ferry dock was clean.

Just two spaces allocated spaces in a car park near the cemetary. Nothing special, but handy stopover for hot water beach and cathedral cove. Toilets down the road by ferry landing.

Lovely level area. Well protected by trees. The toilets are down the road at the ferry, a bit of a walk down the hill and up again.
