Right on the beach, we got there around 3pm and noone else was there but it was completely full by dinner time. Toilets were open when we woke up at 7am. Pretty spot, very windy
Lovely spot but lots of homeless living in there cars there and toilets not well kept, probably due to heavy use. Would find somewhere else next time.

It was very good, nice beach beautiful, one one toilet with Musik;)

Amazing spot to camp. Recommend waking up before sunrise and giving it a watch. Sky goes the most amazing colours. Toilet sings to you. There isn’t much more your could ask for
24Sept18. Right on the beach. One flushing, singing toilet as previously described. Limited repertoire tho. Starts with “All the world needs now” and if you take long enough over your business you get “Evergreen”. The same with all the other singing toilets we have used elsewhere.
Kids playground adjacent. My wife enjoyed the swing.
A bit of noise from the timber works and port along the beach but not too bad.
24Sept18. One night only. Great location right by the beach. One public loo, singing, as another reviewer said. The same music as in all the other loos of this type we have encountered so far. “All the world needs now is love, sweet love”. The only downside was a little noise from the timber processing place and port a little way along the beach.
Close to town but yet far enough away to be nice and quiet with the only sounds being the crashing waves. Great singing toilet as well!
Great spot. Musical toilet. Lovely stretch of beach.
Right on the beach. Very cool. Only one toilet though, clean.
Free spot by the beach.
Excellent clean bathroom, outdoor shower supposedly to be used for after he beach but you can take a cold shower there to get cleaned up.
Close to town.
A lot of people and a small area. Get there early.
Cops do cruise by to check out the license plates to make sure no one over stays their limit.
Don't miss sunrise or sunset.

It’s a great spot right by the beach. There is a public toilet but no access to fresh water, which is fine if you’re self contained. We really liked to proximity to Gisborne even though you should arrive before six to get a spot there. Can definitely recommend it!
Solid spot, nice toilets, you'll end up being cozy with your neighbours but the spot usually brings some lovely locals and backpackers together. Standard bins for rubbish.
