Sleeping

There are few good accommodation options on the peninsula itself. The DOC has basic but spectacularly positioned sites at Rarawa Beach, Kapowairua and Tapotupotu Bay. Only water, flush toilets and cold showers are provided. Bring a cooker, as fires are not allowed, and plenty of repellent to ward off mosquitoes and sandflies. ‘Freedom/Leave No Trace’ camping is allowed along the Te Paki Coastal Track.
