Three carparks. Except it's one big painted area. I'm guessing like most of the places in Tauranga, they have lowered the number of parks. Several campervans turned up after it was full. Since its just a big painted area, another van snuck in. If security come, how do you prove you were there first. Most places in Tauranga probably need to get the park before lunch..... lots of 2 spots. Which full very fast. P.s. this spot there have been lots of loud cars driving around. I think in the weekend be hard to sleep!!

Space for four maybe five campers. Nice beach location and close to warehouse and a bar and such. Toilet was a 5/10 minute walk on the beach however (which had a cold shower too).

We lived at Papamoa for 18 years and like coming back in our motorhome for a couple of nights now and then to Stella place. It is a magic place for sunsets and sun rise. The shops are within walking distance. I feel disappointed people grizzle about the lack of toilets. Campers must be self contained. So toilets are on board. If not, you should not be there overnight. End of story.

Just three spots available right on the beach. Location was really wonderful, the only downsides were the lack of toilet on site (although there is a public toilet a short walk down the beach by the surf club) and that the area seems to be a hang out for teens on the weekends, so we had noise around the parking late until fairly late both of the nights we stayed.

Right besided a beautiful beach so location is excellent. You walk from the carpark straight down across the dunes. Surrounding was clean and easy accessible. Only downside is the lack of a public toilet on the parking lot.
