Tahunanui Beach in Nelson - Tasman Bay is a sheltered beach break that has unreliable waves with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the south and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Light onshore winds ruin the qulaity Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Best around high tide. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown.
