Atmosphere

At low tide you can dig holes on the beach only about a foot deep. and it fills up with hot water and you can kick back in a warm pool of water.

camping closed - The foreshore campground is now closed which is a real shame . The owners are building their dream house and I hardly blame them. This is a lovely little spot which I went to for the first time this easter. It was 1-2 ft but just beautiful clean fun with really nice people in the water . Thank-you for sharing your waves with me and if you are ever in Oz at my local I will show you the same courtesy

seasons - Hey- anyone know what the best season is for this area? I am heading to NZ for their winter (June and July are the months of my trip) and this place sounds killer. Any help would be graciously appreciated.
