The Freedom Camping Trial is now finished, and you might not be able to stay at this location
The Council is presently reviewing their Freedom Camping Bylaw
The freedom campling locations at Snells Beach and Algies Bay are still available
Motorhome parking between the designated arrows
Access to the beach
The Arundel Reserve is at the northern end of Orewa beach and allows self-contained motor caravanners to park overnight directly overlooking the beach.
The carpark is not as large as the Orewa Reserve carpark, but it should be quieter as it is further back from the main road, and well away from the tourist activity in the town centre. This is a great location to go to sleep at night listening to the sound of the waves on the beach.
And, if you really miss the cafe scene, you can always try out the Walnut Cottage Cafe just a few minutes walk across the highway.
The council requires overnight parking between the arrows, but the bays aren't really long enough unless you park parallel to the kerb, which wouldn't leave room for more that 2 or 3 vans, depending on size. Backing in is always a possibility.
