Not so much a post card more the whole guide
book from Mr & Mrs Steve........
In the East Coromandel we camped at Waikawau Bay on
the Department of Conservation (DOC) campsite.
Camping there in the large basic site we chose a
pitch well away from most people and about 50m from just one other tent
on that particular field - only to notice that they were nude at their
site. They were delighted that we were happy with that! So that corner
of the camp became independently naturist.
Although it is not officially a naturist beach the
couple we met there said that “discrete” nudity is well accepted there
and anyway the beach is so long that it would be highly unlikely to see
anyone else once beyond the area bordering the camp.
We liked it so much mainly because of the
space to walk along a really long deserted beach. We decided to
stay another night—however we were woken at 5 the next morning
by the DoC Warden telling us about a tsunami warning and
advising us to clear out to higher ground.
