Just a small car park, with 4 car spaces for campervans. Beside the water but not exactly scenic, we were unsure why this spot had such a high rating. As soon as night fell a bunch of loud boy racer cars turned up and the people were loud, having some sort of car meet. There are toilets, but that’s about it. Wouldn’t go back.

Really lovely place to stay over, right by the beach. Where you can watch the beautiful sunset and sunrise.
Few shops, cafes and bars nearby.
Just 4 spots for campers so you’ll need to be early. We arrived at 1pm and there was just one space left.
Clean toilets right next to the camping spots

Awesome spot, large car park with 4 self contained vehicle spaces and nice views over the water. Few people around at sunset, but the car park was empty overnight. Toilets were clean 👌

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.
