Muriwai Motorcamp Muriwai Beach Reviews
Tent right beside the beach Feb 09, 2011
Muriawi Motorcamp, located right beside Muriwai Beach and an about 40 minute drive from Auckland, is a nice, spacious and family-friendly campsite at the west coast of the Northland Region.
Muriwai Motorcamp provides power sites and tent sites for truly reasonable rates. But be aware that there are no cabins available on-site. The check-in is a pretty uncomplicated procedure, and you can pick your favourite spot for tent/camper yourself.
A large shared kitchen with sitting areas inside and outside but without any cooking utensils available allows guests to prepare their meals.
The bathroom facilities are clean and convenient as well but you have to have at least one 50-cent coin on hand if you're interested in taking a shower. So this service isn't inclusive.
In case you walk toward showers/toilets after twilight you better bring a torch since there's no outside lighting.
There are laundry facilities and a TV lounge, both arranged in one room next to the camp office, and picnic areas. Besides the local café is just around the corner.
The campsite's great plus is definitely the location only a stone's throw away from the greyish, smooth beach where you can go swimming and surfing, fishing and mountain biking, watch the rare see gannets flying path and, if you're lucky, marvel at some stunning sunsets.
I think Muriwai Motorside's location is hard to beat and combined with a laid-back and child-friendly atmosphere it definitely suits everyone looking for a nice campsite for a couple of days on the beach.
