    We stayed at Waipu Cove for obe night. The campground is beautifully situated right on the beach, from where you can beautifully hike along the coast. Facilities are good and clean (metered showers). There is a restaurant close by!

    Visited several times in the off season. Good clean facilities. Very short up over the sand dune to a great beach. Visited in May and the Cove Restaurant nearby was still open with great food/drinks.Recommended campground.
