Tahunanui Beach Mar 06, 2008
The clean, soft, white sands of Tahuna Beach make it a great place for family fun. The beach is very safe for swimming and its quite a long beach so it is never over crowded. There are play equipments provided to amuse the little children and a small zoo for older children.

Haul-a-Shore Island is off the beach towards the port.

Tahuna is always a pleasant place on a hot summers day.

When I was a child we used to collect Pipi's (shellfish) from the point of this beach, you had to dig for them, then we would boil them up for dinner. Lovely but rather gritty as we never seemed to be able to remove all the grains of sand. I don't think there are many Pipi left. But we didn't eat tehm all honest!
