Stunning beach and facilities
Apr. 2021 • Family
Really nice picnic facilities. We took a picnic along but other families were having a bbq. Was really nice to see such a clean picnic area. Had a lovely stroll on the gorgeous beach. Was a lovely farm day too.

Disappointing

Easy drive from Nelson. Lovely sandy beach but nothing else. Was a really windy day we visited so didn't walk here much looks like it would be a great beach for young children, but we didn't notice any toilets

If you are looking for an escape from the city of Nelson and want somewhere for a quiet, peaceful walk, look no further... Rabbit Island Beach is an ideal place to go.

I love this beach, gentle waves and warm water, its a great place for families or couples with plenty of space to spread out. Good facilities and lots of picnic spots and it's free.

Good amenities

White sandy beach with some driftwood. Cycle trails and lots of parking. Don’t have to take a ferry, you can drive across on the bridge. Closes at 8:30 pm.
Toilets, outdoor showers and picnic tables and bbq sites around.
Safe swimming beach and good for paddle boarding.

Island Cycling
Feb. 2020
We visited Rabbit Island via a beautiful cycle trail, from Nelson to Mapua. After crossing the C.B. Kidson Bridge onto the island, we cycled past estuaries, historic sites, ecological restoration projects, and fantastic beaches. There were picnic tables along the route in picturesque settings. The Mapua Ferry carries cyclists back to the mainland. The island is also accessible by car.

Great walking
Feb. 2020 • Couples
I love coming to this beach. It’s about half an hour travel from Nelson. The beach at self is very long and beautiful sand. Is a great place to have a walk you can also swim in the sea. Also a great place for barbecue and picnics.

Lovely beaches, lovely walks and bike trails, a beautiful area. I was lucky to be there in summer but I’m sure it is beautiful even in winter.
