Nelson Tasman is a beautiful place to be at any time of year. There’s just something about the quality of the light that inspires visitors, whatever the season.

Our consistently sunny weather and temperate climate means that outdoor activities can be on your agenda whenever you choose to visit. Even during the winter months, you'll still see paddle-boarders out in Tasman Bay, gliding through the water and looking out to the stunning snow-capped mountains beyond.

Nelson Tasman regularly vies for the title of the place with the most annual sunshine hours in New Zealand (2555 hours in 2018) so you don’t just need to take our word for it! Come and see for yourself.
