About 25km from central Nelson, this is a long, north facing beach backed by forestry plantation. Great spot for a quiet day at the beach.
Only works with NW – N – NE winds – not good in anything with S in it. Only suitable from mid to low tide due to the trees right at the edge of the beach creating gusty up-drafts on higher tides. Only spot close to Nelson that is any good in a NE.
Suitable for all levels of rider, and also popular with landboards / buggies.
