        The facilities are excellent, property is well kept. I would recommend the motor camp . We stayed in a double room with bath in the lodge. Less than a mile from 90 mile beach. 75 nz dollars for a double room with bath.The television wasn't working in the room (Unit 1 )shower and toilet where clean .The kitchen had everything you need with a nice lounge area .

        We didn't hang around in Snell's Beach, where we had camped for the night. Not that it's a bad place, just that the camping area was next to a works site, noisy lorries and workman turning up to work on the site for the day.

        We drove north, out of the Auckland suburbs and commuter belt and back to the New Zealand roads we are more familiar with, winding, hilly and lots of road works! The Highways agency out here must be one of the largest employers, ...

        We headed north. The whole region right up to the very top of NZ is called, imaginatively, Northland. It has a subtropical climate year round (not that I noticed that the first night in Sid - my mini hot water bottle came in very useful) and is therefore ...

        ... it, like another bit of holiday. The weather and atmosphere feels like Greece or Spain. Another night in DOC site, and another hole for a toilet on the Coromandel. We don’t mind to save the money.

        Second night on the Coromandle was another top 10 site located close to the hot water beach. Before settling at our camp site, we headed to a place called Cathedral Cove, a rock hollowed into a cove by the power of the sea. We parked the car in the closest car park and ...
