Great view. Toilets and showers available over the nearby Hill. Easy access to the black sand beach. Nice and quiet. Would stay again if in the area

Beautiful spot right on the cliff overlooking a beautiful black sand beach. One spot for 4 cars but if that is full carry on along the cliff about 100m and there is space for 4 more. There was only one other van when we were there and it was one our favourite freedom camping spots we stayed at suring our month in NZ. Toilets and a cold shower close by. 10 star rating for the beautiful view, perfect for sunsets.

Amazing site! By far our favourite freedom camping site. Beautiful spot right next to the beach with caves to explore. 3 areas with parking meant for 3 campers but leniency for more campers at times! It wasn’t full when we were there but the ranger came by to say hi and said at times it gets full with over 10 campers in a spot!
Clean flush toilets and private cold showers minutes walk away. A camping spot you just shouldn’t miss experiencing!
