Great site, yes it is a parking site but lined with grass so you can park on hard ground and put up tables etc on grass. Nice toilet and a cold outdoor shower. Came at 7 pm in march and still some places left
Large space for multiple people, great views come early to get a spot right on the beach. Clean bathrooms, cold showers and water. Even with how many people it held it was a quite and respectful place. Bring your own surf board for this one.

Basically a parking lot.
Its an inverted L shape with the bottom section facing the ocean.
We arrived 3pm on a friday and the ocean facing was full, by 7pm the complete lot was packed.
Great place to watch the sun set, toilets are decent enougj considering they're public.
We were with our small kids so the next morning we went to the nearby McDonalds for breakfast (mainly for the kids to use the play area)
Great site right next to the beach. Toilets cleaned twice a day but get a fair bit of traffic. Outdoor shower available. Access is a little different from what is described in this article though - best access these days is via signs to Cobden Breakwater right next to speedway (due to closure of access from Bright Street).
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Awesome location and very clean toilets! It was very busy though, it was full after about 7pm so you have to be early.
Would be a higher review but the decent parking spots were taken at 4pm when we arrived, and people were parked badly to artificially create more space for themselves. Decent toilets and good view of the sunset.
GERARD & AXELLES
great spot for 1 or 2 nights.
enough space for 25cars at least.
rubbish bins were pretty full.
5min from town centre.
right next to the beach.
alot of people though.
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.
