Arriving here in the middle of the day, I was amazed at how busy it was and it was all Tents and some Caravans. Motorhomes again were the exception.

I’ve been here before a couple of years ago and although not much has changed, it is a great spot and the old style campground where its all about having fun.
The new Managers Sue and Laurence managed to fit us in right on the front row in a prime spot overlooking the Beach.
This really is a lovely spot down in a valley just along from Manaia on the South Taranaki Coast. It wouldn’t be more than 6 k’s or so from Manaia where the Yarrow Bread factory is so make sure you stop on the way!

After plugging in and opening some vents, we were off for a look around. There are two levels to the valley, the upper level where the campground is and the lower level where there is a public park and a footbridge connecting with the Sand hills and the beach beyond.
Between the two levels are two massive slides. Lots of fun for the wee ones.
After crossing the bridge and walking down to the beach, Fiona decided to do one her long walks almost the length off the beach.
It was New Years Eve and there were Fireworks on the beach and everyone came out to watch.
A lovely spot.
