This is a holiday site with cabins, caravans and tent space, kitchen, dining room, clean toilets and showers, also a shop. The charming Site staff are tireless in helping their guests enjoy themselves, as in taking the kids for trailer rides, supplying wood for a communal bonfire, etc. And the location has it all too, with gentle beaches and an...

My 3 sons and I stayed in one of the beach cottages. Our cottage was immaculately presented. 2 bedrooms. Queen size bed for me, and the boys were in the other bedroom which had a bunk bed and a single bed. Large bathroom. Great shower. Beautiful soft bed linen. Bath towels provided. Beautiful view of the beach. Fabulous surfing. Leigh... More

Amazing place, we stayed in a cabin for 3 nights, wish we could have stay longer, the couple who run the place are super friendly and helpful. The beach is amazing and have white sand that runs for miles.

Booked two camping sites over the phone and was told they would email me the details. I confirmed the booking again via email then received a message back saying the sites had been given to someone else and they are now fully booked!

We stayed for 2 nights at the start of Feb, which was just after the school holidays so it was nice and quiet. I could imagine it would be pretty busy during the height of school holidays.

Years ago this was a thriving busy camping ground. We were here in mid Jan when the weather was lovely and it was almost desolate, perhaps only 20% full. We wondered why as it should be full this time of year. The beach here is beautiful, although the surf can be daunting at times. We discovered why - It's expensive... More

We are thankful for your response - office hours are from 8.30am to 8.00pm. After this the same staff has to clean toilets and facilities, clean the office and do cash up. Pakiri Beach is very rural and staff is hard to come by, so hats off to these staff members and luckily other people appreciate their friendliness and helpfulness.... More

Pakiri beach is located at the mouth of the Pakiri river and has a beautiful estuary leading to the sea. The sea isn't the usual east coast Auckland type and even though there's life guards it was a bit wild with a few rips and it'd be best to stay within the flags. The camp is spotless, really well maintained... More
