We recently have 6 wonderful night here! Can't wait to go back! Visited just as became valid for DOC Campsite Pass, was still a bit busy, but after the last kiddies left it was nice and peaceful. We were able to check-in early, we chose a site in the N section. Walks, swimming, biking, kayaking, just great! Limited One NZ signal, but Starlink was great! There is a noise curfew at 22:00 each night, sadly DOC do not police this, so a couple of nights we did have some obnoxious kiwis partying, drinking and letting their kids run wild! But when they left, was great!! TASMAN TRAVELS



Really loved our stay here. The campsite has everything you need. Toilet blocks are never far away, private cold showers in each one. The beach is insanely beautiful and great for a proper swim as it gets deep quite quickly. The inlet is also lovely to swim in and safe for children. Also highly recommend the walk to Separation Point.



Wide open spaces for the kids to explore, endless golden beach and walks and bike rides right on our doorstep. Sunrises we're incredible and overly friendly wekas like we've never seen! One of the truely incredible and unique DOC sites of NZ.
