Big car park. Toilets, showers and washing machine to be paid with Kiwi card you can purchase down the road at the dairy. Beautiful spot, walkway to the beach or a 10 min bike ride to Anzac Bay. Friendly locals with a cute cafe/bar a couple minutes walk away. Plenty of room if you’re in a caravan or motor home.
