Cable Bay Walkway
The Cable Bay Walkway starts beside the main car park at the end of the Cable Bay boulder bank. From there, head straight up the grassy hill to the top at 250 metres above the bay. This is all about the views, which are superb. From the top, you get a sense of how big Tasman Bay is – you are looking across the bay to Abel Tasman National Park.
You can continue on the walkway through a mix of farmland, exotic pines and native bush for a couple of hours to Gleduan, a small beachside settlement to the northeast of Nelson. This beach is basically pebbles and rocks, which has its own attraction.
