Great freedom camping spot for 3 - 4 self contained vehicles. Pristine location right on the beach, so close you’re almost sleeping on it. There are public toilets close by which are about what you expect for public toilets. In peak season I suggest you get there relatively early on in the day to make sure you get a spot as space is limited. A local freedom camping ambassador approached us with flyers about local dump stations etc and mentioned that there was a spill over parking location further down the reserve, so maybe they can handle more campers. This is not a secluded spot so be prepared for some noisy cars hooning past and not too much privacy.
Toilets are close. Space for about 4 vans shorter than 6 meter.
Very nice vibe as you drive into the area. As you drive along the rd you'll notice the pines and toilets. Not so far after the toilets is the designated spaces. Very limited spaces however when you have one the beach is very relaxing and quiet.
Awesome spot, right on the beach! Super busy, so we had to park just outside of the designated camping spot (room for about 4-5 vans). A lot of people were camping outside of the designated spots. Public flushing toilets. Great spot to watch the sun rise/set!
Very lovely spot to stay the night when we were making our way north. Picnic tables next to camping spots to cook dinner. The view of the beach was nice and the bathrooms close by.
Good for self contained and non-self contained campervans!
Busy beach on the weekend, but empties out by early evening. Spectacular views of sunset, and safe beach to swim!
Super flat spot to park and camp, right at edge of beach. 10min drive into Tutukaka for diving and snorkelling!
This is a lovely quiet spot right next to the beach. Very scenic, with public toilets that were clean and open 24hr. No designated spaces and a fair bit of space for everyone to enjoy.
