The Store at Kekerengu offers fine dining, or cafe lunches, with a view over the bay. Overnight parking is allowed for self-contained motor caravanners.
We were driving north to Picton from Kaikoura, and noticed The Store as we were passing through Kekerengu. It looked like significantly more than a country dairy, so we stopped to have a look.
Inside was a really nice cafe with lots of people sitting outside under sun umbrellas having lunch, or afternoon tea. It looked pretty good, so we decided to join them.
I asked the waitress if motor caravanners would be allowed to use their carpark overnight, and she said yes - they often have people stay over.
You can also park on the beachfront which is accessed down the driveway from the upper carpark.
What a great discovery! We didn't need to stay at the time, but it's a great option for the future, especially as the restaurant does evening meals as well.
If you'd like to stay, be sure to ask at the restaurant.
