Tāhuna Summer Beach Bus

Wednesday 27th December 2023-Saturday 20th January 2024

Take a fun ride around the stunning Rocks Road coastline this summer!

The Summer Beach Bus runs throughout the day between Tāhuna Beach Holiday Park and lower Trafalgar Street, 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 long welcoming sands of Tāhunanui Beach are complemented by a range of leisure activities, parks and eating options.
