Cable Bay and Hira Horse Trekking Tours
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.
Mobile-friendly - Just 15 minutes from Nelson city, discover the exhilaration of horse riding across the river, though farmlands, forests and into the hills for wonderful views of the surrounding bays. Adventures available for beginners and experienced riders alike. Other available activities include guided quad bike adventures, the Skywire flying-fox, paintball, the Argo, biking, hiking and our licenced café is open daily.
