    I've stayed here many time and love the location. Waipu has one of the most perfect long beaches in Northland. Some will disagree but it a great place. The Cabins are right on the beach and perfect for evening walks or summer swims, or...

    Beautiful and clean unit, well set up for a short stay. The reception staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Perfect location next to the beach and near a fantastic cafe.

Property information

You'll find Camp Waipu Cove nestled at the southern end of the beautiful and unspoiled Bream Bay. Our Northland holiday park’s great facilities, supreme beach location and well-kept Waipu Cove accommodation create the ideal setting for a classic Kiwi getaway.

Neighbourhood information

Waipu Cove beach, one of Bream Bay’s finest beaches, is right here at camp and just a stone’s throw from your accommodation! Waipu Cove is an open surf beach and is patrolled by lifeguards in season. Waipu Cove is excellent for surfing, when the swell is up and one of Northland’s great surfing attractions. Relax in the sun, watch the little ones building sandcastles or take a dip or stroll along miles of soft, white sand. There is a lovely river on the southern end of the beach, which is great for the children to swim in. Waipu town centre is just a five minute drive from Camp Waipu Cove. Here you will find a variety of places to enjoy a hearty breakfast, good coffee or top-quality restaurant dinner. The closest city to Waipu is Whangarei. Both Waipu and our Waipu Cove accommodation are just a 40 minute drive from Whangarei. Waipu town also offers a large grocery store, along with great gift and craft stores that are well worth a browse. Waipu’s Monthly Markets are held on the first Saturday and second Sunday of each month and are a great Northland attraction.
