The carpark at the eastern end of Maraetai Beach has a small carpark directly overlooking the bay. There are public toilets on the other side of the road.


This is a choice location, right on the beachfront. Maraetai beach is hugely popular, with a lovely sandy beach, and a restaurant and dairy shop nearby. It is consequently very busy in the weekends, and over the summer holidays. You're unlikely to find anywhere to park a large van during these times.


It is much quieter at other times, and we have enjoyed a nice meal in the restaurant, which is just a short walk along the beach from the carpark.


There was no council sign about parking overnight, but it is possible that you might get moved on by a council officer.
