Totaranui Camping GroundNovember 21, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C
This site was recommended to us by the owner of the camp site in Panukiaki as this site is one that kiwis mostly use if they go camping.
She neglected to mention the 80km of winding pass roads including 17km of that on gravel road to get there. Not the easiest drive by a long shot and took about 2 hours to drive this.
It was well worth the drive, probably the most scenic of all the campsites we have been to, the beach was amazing and several walking tracks, including the final day of the Abel Tasman track. The beauty and natural surroundings reminds me off Tsitsikama in SA and I would recommend this campsite to anyone who's willing to do a cold shower, yes I forget to mention they have showers but only cold showers. We braved it, brrrrrrr....
The sunset was just amazing on the beach as the ocean blue and orange beach combined beautifully with the pink sky
