Waipu Camping

New Zealand has so many incredible destinations, but this possibly has to be at the top of our list. Waipu is home to the most perfect white-sandy beaches, McLeod’s Pizza Barn (which has the best pizzas in all of NZ), and epic surf!

If you’re visiting Waipu, stop in at Camp Waipu Cove. When we hire a campervan, we will often stay here for at least one to two weeks. Forget heading overseas, because Waipu truly does feel like an island paradise.

Nestled at the Southern end of Bream Bay, Camp Waipu Cove is right beside the beach. The facilities here a clean and welcoming, offering the perfect backdrop.
