Include the Tāhuna Summer Beach Bus in your summer holiday plans and enjoy Nelson's stunning coastline from the viewpoint of a double-decker bus, running regularly every day until the end of 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 bus service is a collaboration between Tāhuna Beach Holiday Park and Nelson City Council.
