Tāhuna Summer Beach Bus

Monday 27th December 2021-Monday 31st January 2022

If you’re heading to the beach this summer consider including the double-decker Tāhuna Summer Beach Bus in the day’s activities.

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).

Vaccine passes are not required to ride. The bus service is a collaboration between Tāhuna Beach Holiday Park and Nelson City Council.
