Fantail Bay

Fantail Bay is a very popular destination for camping during the summer, the area has great fishing opportunities from the small beach and rocks or from small trailer boats that can be launched from the boat ramp located in the bay.

This camping spot is one of our favorites located on the western side of the coromandel  peninsula while not a large camp ground the place is just over the road from the ocean with awsome views out across the Hauraki Gulf, there is not really a beach here as it is all pebbles, but the area is a good picnic spot.

The off season there is always a camp spot here but during the holidays it is a different story, the place can get full in a short time, also there is no freedom camping any where on the peninsula and no dogs allowed as well.

The camp ground has basic amenities like toilets etc, and you can use tents or campers the area is not suited to large caravans as the road is narrow and rough, the nearest shop is back at Colville around thirty minutes drive away so you need to bring in supplies like water etc.
