The Waihi Beach community have embraced the motorhome-friendly programme, and offer no less than seven free locations for overnight parking, in addition to the 5 holiday parks and other low cost parking locations.
Island View Reserve is along the main Beach Road, and provides a modern, high-tech toilet, a public dump station, potable water for topping up tanks, and a walkway to the beach.
We visited in mid-winter, and the weather was cold and blustery, so we stayed for long enough to take some pictures before moving on to the next location.
While it is a pretty location, with the beach on one side and some up-market properties across the road, it is a lttle noisy with traffic along the busy road. However, in the middle of the summer holiday season, when all the other places are full, this would still be a good location to overnight and explore the beach.
