Secluded Beaches to Visit

When you're touring around the Coromandel in a Motorhome or Campervan, make sure you stop and take the walk to New Chums Beach. Its an easy stroll through the beautiful Nikau Palms and Pohutakawa trees (New Zealand native trees) to this stunning and secluded beach. You'll find directions in our handy reference guide to the Coromandel, located in every vehicle. Take time to enjoy and appreciate.

Latest Winter Camping Trip

Our latest family winter camping trip has taken us just down the road, to one of our all time favourite spots on the Coromandel Peninsula....Hahei.
Here we always choose a hilltop camp site at the campground which looks out over the ocean and islands. This time we tried out the bike racks we have available for hire and took our bikes for a leisurely ride around the quiet streets and lanes. The days were sunny and crisp and the LPG heater inside the motorhome kept us all warm at night. If you have a favourite spot that you always head to when you go camping, we'd love to hear about it.

Family Motorhome Holidays

We love family motorhome holidays and we know what its like to travel with children. Hiring a motorhome or campervan provides convenience for a family, it's safe, cost effective and flexible and it gives you transport, a kitchen, bathroom and a place to sleep. Everything is on hand when you need it.
You’re on your own schedule, you can stop to drink, eat & sleep when you want. You get to keep your things in a familiar place and sleep in the same bed but see something different every day. And at the campground in the evening, there are new friends to play with and other parents you can share a pre dinner drink with, giving everyone some time out. Discover a new way to have a family adventure together, visit us at Coastal Campers.

What to bring on a Campervan holiday

It’s a good idea to bring your belongings in small collapsible or soft sided bags. Once you have unpacked, these can be easily fitted into one of the storage areas, unlike a suitcase.
If you are hiring a vehicle from Coastal Campers in Whitianga, you’ll find starter kits in all of our vehicles. These include dishwashing detergent, soap, toilet paper & tissues. On board you’ll also find salt & pepper, tea towels, first aid kit, torch, maps and information. Your fresh, clean bedding, linen and towels will be ready for you to use. Simply bring your clothing and personal items.
You can visit a supermarket close by to purchase food, coffee, milk & sugar etc. Outdoor chairs and table are provided free of charge.
Coastal Campers make it easy for you; let us know if there are other items you’d like to see provided.

Hiring a Campervan the easy way

When you're planning to hire a campervan in New Zealand, make sure you know whats included for the advertised daily rate.
Not all campervan companies are the same. Some have a daily rate that needs insurance added on top of it and some will charge you for extra items that you need on a camping holiday, like outdoor chairs and tables. You may also be charged for extras when you return from your travels. This can include Diesel Road User Charges (a tax in NZ chargeable by the amount of kilometres you have travelled) and LPG refilling.
At Coastal Campers, Whitianga we make it easy for you with a daily rate that includes everything, even insurance. You’ll find outdoor chairs and table on board, free of charge because you need to have somewhere to sit outside and enjoy a sunset on an evening. We have free road user charges and roadside assistance and we ask you to refill the LPG bottle before you return so you only need to pay for the amount you used. When you book a campervan holiday with Coastal Campers you’ll know exactly what you’re paying for. Contact us today, we look forward to helping you plan your road trip.
