Only 4 places so, as others have said, you need to get there early.
Great location, fabulous views, very well maintained toilets are close to the self contained bays. There is also free wifi, although not consistent.
Cafes, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance.

Great place to stay if you get a spot, only 4 spaces and we were lucky enough to get one. Toilet is very nice and clean, outside shower, and free wifi. Beautiful sunrises and sunset!! And close to pubs on the Harbour. 10/10 spot.

A lovely location right on the beach (sunrise was pretty) and with plenty of space for a kick-about with a football. Public toilets are clean. Some noise from a gathering during the evening but not a problem. Two places to eat within walking distance; one cafe, one restaurant. Probably drive into Napier town rather than walk from here.

About 10 other vans here. Close to the sea, oh yes on three sides, quiet, plenty of restaurants near by and best of all for us is the Hawkes bay canoe club for going out with the club and canoeing and kayaking.

Lovely spot, quiet and easy to access town. Ideally only for self contained camper vans; decent toilets.

Being a point there was water around 3 sides of us. There was one other van parked but room for a least 10 if needed. The toilets seemed clean enough. Very handy to town.
