Tahuna Beach Kiwi Holiday Park and Motel is located 4.5 kilometres from Nelson city centre and adjacent to the long golden sands of Tahunanui Beach. It covers 54 acres of parkland that has been available for almost nine decades for holidaymakers to enjoy.

Today Tahuna Beach Holiday Park offers accommodation that suits every holidaymaker and traveller’s budget – from unpowered campsites to cosy cabins to modern, fully self-contained apartment motel units.

The holiday park’s location gives you direct access to the beach, playing fields and local beachside attractions.

On site there are several recreation areas, including beach volleyball court, basketball court, several playgrounds, an 18 hole mini golf course, a fitness track with 14 exercise stations and an outdoor amphitheatre for live music and other events.

Tahuna Beach Holiday Park also has its very own function centre for corporate and community functions as well as weddings and private parties.

The Tahuna Beach Holiday Park camp store sells all the basic daily products you might need.

Our Tahuna Beach Holiday Park Concierge Service can book all activities in the region for our guests on site as well.

In 2016 we celebrate our 90th anniversary – find out more about Tahuna Beach Holiday Park’s history.

It has large grounds. I got lost. Hint: the allocated number is on a tile on the ground. The common kitchen is new and smart. There are no cooking utensils provided. The airport must be close. In the early evening planes frequently fly low over the grounds.

Old facilties and quite expensive for what you get. They shut down 2 of the amenities blocks so they don't have to clean them so ones they do have open get busy.

Great campsite, couldn't get much closer to the beach. Facilities are excellent, plenty of toilets and showers, well equipped kitchen areas and all very clean. Lots of hot water so no luke warm showers for late comers. Kids playground is good, not as fab as others but still fun. Only downside is that the sites are quite small, some would be barely big enough for our caravan and awning etc. Can't wait to come back!

A huge camping ground with lots of choice of sites. Plenty of facilities even when busy. A nice location close to the beach, but only a short drive to Nelson. A great place to stay if you have kids.

Great place, cleaned facilities but a bit old. We ended up here as top 10 holiday park was full. It does the job for a 1 night top (coming from Picton ferry terminal) before heading to Abel Tasman park. We did not very like the atmospheres of the dodgy looking permanent residents.

Nice campsite by the beach - good facilities close to every section as the whole complex is huge. $20 pp for unpowered and sites are right beside the open beach front, so you feel the full force of the wind if camping. Otherwise a nice place to stay that is not a tourist trap

Huge site with multiple facilities, clean but dated. Nest to beach and local leisure facilities. Lacks a bit of character

Stayed 1 night 1 adult 3 kids. Surprised how huge the camp sites are compared to other camps we’ve stayed at. Good kids play area and facilities are clean, new and spacious. We originally got put on a campsite, pitched our tent and found the blazing sun incredibly to much. Ask to move under the trees and they were more than accommodating. Gripes- The Nelson airport is close by and planes are landing or taking off early. So loud! Also after paying $70 for tenting I hate it that you have to pay extra for mini golf in the kids play area etc. find it annoying and should be inclusive

Hi Shane, thanks for your review and feedback. Glad to hear that you had a good experience here and with our staff. Unfortunately the planes are out of our control. Our Mini Golf is also open to the public so we are unable to offer it for free.
