No Camping sign


The Camp Waipu Cove campground offers chalets and tent camping, but has no facilities for motor caravanners.


Waipu Cove is one of those locations that looks stunning when driving through. It's a small beach front community, with some basic shops, a nice restaurant, large, colourfully decorated public toilets, and a golden sand beach that attracts lots of visitors. And yet, it left us feeling that motor caravanners are not welcome.


The public carpark for accessing the beach features prominent No Camping signs. That might be expected with the campground right next door, except that the campsite doesn't take motorhomes or caravans. 


We'd have liked to stay overnight, and maybe try a meal in the restaurant across the road, but deciced to move on.
