Te Awaiti Camping Area

Te Awaiti Camping Area

Spectacular! Do not be put off by the remoteness. The drive is a small price to pay for this isolated paradise.

A saltwater lagoon at the end of a dead-end road with waves crashing in the distance beyond the sand bar Te Awaiti is the definition of paradise on an island in the Pacific.

Enjoy a short walk up the gravel road to access pebble beaches and watch the waves or collect some driftwood; sit back by a campfire and watch the Pied Shag (Karuhirhi) and Skylarks.

Amenities are sparse, with a composting loo and rubbish bins, but the vista more than makes up for it.
