Absolutely fab spot! One of our favourites in all of NZ. There are only 4 bays which is really nice as keeps things fairy lowkey. Great vibe to wake up right on the beach.
Would recommend reverse parking into the bay so that you can pop your camper’s back door in the morning and look out onto the ocean.
My partner and I spent my birthday there and couldn’t have hoped for a better place (or company!) - with stunning Art Deco architecture and vineyards just 10 minutes away. Short taxi to main town or can walk 20 mins to a load of bars and restaurants on the harbour front.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Great little place. Large potholes on the road in. Nice and quiet. Toilets clean and nearby. Beautiful view and sunrise. Large open grass area next to it.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Contentious site, locals vigilant about reporting campers (mostly members of NZMCA) who park anywhere on the reserve if the 4 designated camping sites are full. Armourguard patrol and issue $200 fines
In front of the sea, quiet, and the toilets of the beach are near the area.
Amazing ! You sleep in front of the sea, really quiet except of the sound of the waves :D
Clean toilets. We stayed two nights (maximum allowed).
Washroom water available, beach.
Quiet and somewhat remote location with 7 big vehicle bays on all weather gravel surface, only 2 other vehicles here when we stayed Dec 8th (Perfume Point had 13!)
