Cable Bay and Hira
Rotokura / Cable Bay is a bay and small settlement 18 kilometres north-east of Nelson.
The settlement at the head of the bay is at the southern end of a thin strip of land or causeway connecting Pepin Island with the South Island.
The sheltered beach at Cable Bay has sandy patches but is mostly a shingle beach. The thin land connection to Pepin Island forming the crest of the beach is the result of a rare combination of strong currents and a rock source. The area is part of the Cable Bay Recreation Reserve, managed by the New Zealand Department of Conservation. It offers ample parking, toilets, and picnic tables, but no rubbish facilities. Overnight staying is not permitted on the reserve. more
The adjacent marine reserve offers recreational opportunities such as kayaking and snorkelling. There are also sea kayak trip ranging from half-day to day-trips around Pepin Island departing at Cable Bay.
Up the road from the Cable Bay beach is the Cable Bay Café, which is one of the oldest cafes in the Nelson region, originally opened as a tearoom in 1920.
