Tahunanui, Nelson, New Zealand
Tahunanui is Nelson’s beach suburb and we reckon it’s New Zealand’s best beach. We love living here and the beach reserve area is a large part of the reason why Nelson is consistently rated as the one of the most desirable places to live in New Zealand.
Tahunanui has many great accommodation options and places to stay, great places for food and drink, lots of fun things to do, local shops and a thriving community
