Beachaven camp site, Leo Street, Waihi Beach 

A camp site is an unusual thing to see in these pages. But this is no ordinary camp site. Nestled just a few minutes from the beach at Waihi Beach, this campsite has a trick up its sleeve. But first here’s a photo of our hired motorhome on our pitch with  a palm tree. Our first time camping next to a palm tree. 


Here’s the reason that this camp site is featuring here. A wood fired pizza oven, free to use for anyone on site. How awesome is that?!? It gets lit every Saturday evening, and you can take your pizzas along whenever you are ready.  


We picked up a couple from Countdown (NZ Tesco) before we left Auckland, as there was no way we were missing out on such an opportunity!

They took about 90 seconds to cook to perfection, you can’t beat the taste of wood fired pizza. What a great idea and what a great camp site! All of the facilities are great, and they also have small chalet type rooms for non campers. Great place!

The pizza was washed down with a tasty NZ beer, the Sophisticuffs IPA pictured below. Perfect with a meaty pizza…
