We have stayed in our campervan, right on the waters edge. Locals know we have many hidden gem places all the way along the Awhitu Peninsular. Great for family and friends who enjoy making memories of days spent on "Secret Paradise" Fishing is great and kids play in safe water or collecting shells, to remind them of the great time they had. If you enjoy fresh caught fish, cooked right there - Awesome

The tip of the Awhitu Peninsula, just south of Auckland, is an unspoilt, untapped paradise of epic proportions. Many South Auckland locals know about this idyllic little getaway yet it remains pretty much a secret from the rest of the country. Orua Bay Beach is a golden-sand spectacular and the motor camp there is reminiscent of a more slower pace of life. When you stand on the beach here after erecting your tent, you feel like there is limitless possibility about what you can do with your day, whether that’s lying under a pohutukawa and reading a good book or wallowing like a whale in the clear-blue water. Plus the bay in which this campground is located is very safe so it’s a great place for families with kids to get away from it all and enjoy a quintessential Kiwi camping experience.

So far but so close to Auckland, a wonderful isolated spot on the Awhitu Peninsula with all the mod cons. It is a rare glimpse for Aucklanders. Many of who have seen the site from the air departing or landing at Auckland Airport. Very nice.
