Napenape Road, Hurunui Mouth, South Island


Some parking spots on side of road, overlooking rugged coastline and shingle beach. Beach is good for surfcasting, but not safe for swimming. 2 night stay max. You must be fully self-contained.

Nice place we stayed 2 nights the view on the beach was really nice kinda windy though. Make sure you don't try to go to the second part of the freecamp if you're not 4W as it's very sandy, we got stuck in the middle (Toyota estima)



Just spent two nights here. Beautiful, wonderful! Just two others on the first night, seven on the second, but you wouldn't know it. About 18kms of decent unsealed road, easy in a campervan, just take it slow, last 2km are worst, FYI, at 12kms in there's a gate with a 'road closed' sign on it, it's open now but not sure how you'd know it was going to be closed until you get to it?! Plenty of space to choose from, right by the beach. Loads of non SC vehicles here though, please keep this place clean guys. If you see some litter, why not take it with you. No bins, or loos, or signal. The seals are amazing, yes, but they are wild animals so try not to disrupt them too much. Great place. Will be back! Oh, and the stray cats, bless them. We gave some tuna.



Awesome wild spot in front of the beach ! Sheep and seals around. We were alone last night (so rare !) . You can save some gravel road KM by using Hururui Mouth road.
