Beautiful spot. Full by 3PM. Max 6 camping vehicles LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE SIGNS. Eatery nearby closes at 5:30pm. Clearly the council doesn't want us here. Really rude local arrived at 6:45am to run his quad bike, wake everyone up & take photos of who was parked where. Believe he was from K K Star from Fifeshire. Let's hope karma gets him. Made sure not to spend anymore money in Kaikoura. Leave at 6am if you don't want to be harassed.



After reading the comments we didn't feel like spending a night in Kaikoura but decided to do so as we loved the town and we didn't regret it. Enjoyed the west end beach side for sunset and sunrise to catch some fishes. Then slept at Jimmy as others sites were full. Had a great time in Kaikoura. We miss it already!
