This can only be Long Bay about 3 k’s north of Coromandel town and an easy walk.

It is also part of the Camp Saver scheme and although I’ve been here before on my own, it was Fiona’s first time here.
After checking in with Leanne, the camp manager, she advised us that as they had huge amounts of rain, they still had some sites we could use but most of it was roped off due to mud and slush. This is normally a magnificent part of Coromandel and to see it like this was a real shame for them… its only water and will dry out but with the Covid thing and everything else, they needed that like a hole in the head.
I was given the option of two waterfront dryish sites to park on and we easily got in without skidding but the mud was out there 🙂
Click on the Gallery below for a slideshowKauri grove as well up behind the camp which is well worth checking out too but we didn’t get to do that this time.
With the clouds blowing away later in the day, it was just amazing sitting on the side of the beach doing absolutely nothing but taking it all in.
A great destination with plenty to see and do… stick this one on your to do list.!
