I enjoyed our night here. Lot's to do. The walk to Flat Rock is worth a quick wander to look at some cool lava formations. It feels like a great fishing spot, but not much happening on the day we were there. If you're up for it, then get a sweat up by climbing to the summit. Parking arrangements weren't too clear, but the ranger was excellent and explained it all in the morning. Pauanui is a trippy little settlement. Take a drive around and you might see what I mean :)

Flat car park that is busy during the day. Toilets & cold shower available. Room for around 8 campers. I’d get here early especially in summer as it’s a lovely spot. Beautiful outlook to the beach, with bush walk right on your doorstep. My husband went fishing on the rocks so there is that to do if that’s your thing!

Fantastic beach & view, amazing to wake up & walk there. Got the last spot at 7pm.
A few vans parked on grass outside of designated area and were nailed by Coromandel ranger in the morning.

Stopped here for lunch and decided to stay the night we liked it so much! Great beach for a long walk or walk up the mountain ( pretty challenging). Toilets and outdoor shower. 5? Vans allowed to stay. Very exclusive village; mostly holiday homes we recon!

Another cool spot in Pauanui - a Doc walking track also starts from this carpark if you are into seeing the countryside on foot. Quite a rugged beach - I'm not sure it would be great for swimming but certainly a good vantage point to watch a storm roll in.BBQ and picnic tables for true alfresco summer living
