Alert Onetahuti Beach – possible stream crossing

A stream has diverted across the beach just past the Onetahuti Bay Campsite, going north from Onetahuti. At high tide the stream could be as deep as 1.5 m in the middle, and about 20 m across.

If you don't want to wade through, make sure you plan you trip within 4 hours either side of low tide. If not possible, wait and cross when the water is down to a comfortable level – allow for extra time.

Red-alert tide (very high tide) dates for 2021 Nelson/Tasman: 

  • 8 – 9 September
  • 7 – 10 October
  • 5 – 8 November
  • 4 – 7 December
