If you’re heading to the beach this summer consider including the Tāhuna Summer Beach Bus in the day’s activities.
The chance to ride around Nelson’s stunning coastline in a double-decker bus is back, with the Beach Bus service running regularly every day from Monday 27 December until Monday 31 January (including public holidays).
The bus departs from either Tāhuna Beach Holiday Park or Nelson city i-SITE (Trafalgar Street bus stop), stopping at Tāhunanui Beach in each direction.
Popular particularly with children, the service gives the thousands of holiday makers staying in the Tāhunanui area a car-less way of getting to the retail delights of the central city.
Alternatively, city dwellers and visitors can ride to a day at the beach without parking hassles (or sand in the car).
The beach’s shoreline has enjoyed many facility upgrades in recent years and the long family friendly beach is complemented with foreshore activities including a hydro-slide and bumper boats, ProKarts
and ProBounce, tennis and sand volleyball courts, skate park, roller skating rink, BBQ sites and two children’s playgrounds, while the Holiday Park offers a café and mini-golf open to the public.
The bus service is a collaboration between Tāhuna Beach Holiday Park and Nelson City Council and vaccine passes are not required to ride.
