Camper Vans & Tents

We often get approached by vans looking to use our facilities at a reduced rate. We are "camper friendly" but will have limited facilities and options here at busy times. You are welcome to enquire but note overnight parking at the beachfront here is prohibited. There are no options locally for putting up your tent within the Anakiwa bay area.
