The Beach Road Reserve is a nice site, alongside the harbour and there is even a barbeque area available for cooking. However, there is no public toilet.

 

This reserve used to be available for freedom camping, but the Thames Coromandel District Council changed it's status to prohibited when they last reviewed their freedom camping policy for the district.

 

This is a real shame as it's a perfect reserve for motor caravanners, with plenty of room, and well off the road. There's good fishing, and you can gather cockles and pipis, which is a real plus for shellfish lovers.

 

Hopefully, the council will change their mind on this as there doesn't appear to be any reason why self-contained motor caravanners can't stay overnight.
