Location

Ruby Bay, New Zealand

Just 30 minutes from Nelson, the charming seaside village of Mapua is increasingly becoming a favourite holiday spot for tourists. With a lively cluster of restaurants, art galleries, wine bars and a craft brewery, Mapua is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Hire a bike and cycle Tasman's Great Taste Trail, which stretches from central Nelson to Motueka.

Just offshore, Rabbit Island offers a treat for mountain bikers with a network of trails just waiting to be explored. A little ferry departs Mapua Wharf regularly for the Island, with room passengers and their bikes.
The wharf is also a hot spot for fishing or wharf jumping.
