Right on the beach, nice toilets, shame about the noise from the wharf.
I agree with the other reviewers, good location on a beach near town. But felt slightly sketchy. We were there on a Friday and there was a lot of drunken people partying on the beach and shouting nearby. The resident campervans actually made me feel safer!
Beautiful spot! The toilets are 24 hours now - older reviews said they were closed at night. A few sketchy characters, but full enough with other campers that I felt safe
Carpark on the beach next to busy wharf. We didn’t love it and wouldn’t stay again. Too many homeless and dodgy vans, pretty sure one was selling drugs, lots of people coming and going to this one van. The beach is ok but I have been to better. It’s very hard to freedom camp in Gisborne and there is also very limited camp grounds which is such a shame.
Literally is a row of parking spaces but it is a good spot. Gets busy so be there before 3pm. Not that close to town, probably about 30 minute walk. Right on the beach, and a nice grassy area next to parking spots.
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.
Toilets closed at 8pm to 8am in the morning.
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!
