Magic spot looking out on Tasman sea. Adjacent to quite beach walk. Well kept toilets beside parking. Well known stop over particularly with surfers.

Excellent spot by the sea! Road closed signs to the road but just went through them and lots of travellers about. Arrived around 8:30pm and all the spaces were taken but just parked on the side of the road. Toilets and outdoor shower available

We did not use the toilet and when we arrived there, it was almost full. Anyway the beach and surrondings are really nice

Great location as close to town. Probably wise to get there early to secure a spot - say 5ish to get a view of the ocean! Big rock steps to get down to the beach. Two flushing toilets on site and well maintained. Close to a doc kiwi guardian site!!!

Wasn’t as busy when we were here but at least half was full. Toilets where clean and has a wonderful view and lovely to fall asleep to sound of waves.

Absolutely beautiful spot to watch the sun set over the ocean (from the comfort of the warm van haha). Couldn't believe we were staying for free. There were toilets, rubbish bins and taps; next to the beach shower. Great little spot after a long day of driving.

Awesome site! Clean toilets! No hot shower, only a cold outdoor shower is available. Plenty of space. If you like the sight and sound of waves, this is the place!

Another excellent site. Windy yes - but toilets felt like a hotel. So clean. We loved watching the local surfers and boats. So nice to be on flat clean ground. Lots of space. Stay here.

Amazing spot next to the sea front. Excellent toilets plus a cold shower (I braved it, but it was worth it). Room for 12+ Vehicles, so a decent sized car park. Can’t beat a sunset over the ocean.

Too bad it’s a carpark, if it was let’s say a big grassy area where everyone can park however he wants, the place would be my ideal freedom campsite !
You have clean toilets, an outdoor shower, a dump station.
View on the ocean (if you are there early enough to get a spot facing the ocean) is priceless. Cherry on the cake, if you got your surfboard, waves were firing the other day !
