30 July 2021: Onetahuti Beach – possible stream crossing
A stream has diverted across the beach just past the Onetahuti Bay Campsite, going north from Onetahuti. At high tide the stream could be as deep as 1.5 m in the middle, and about 20 m across.
If you don't want to wade through, make sure you plan you trip within 4 hours either side of low tide. If not possible, wait and cross when the water is down to a comfortable level – allow for extra time.
Red-alert tide (very high tide) dates for 2021 Nelson/Tasman:
- 8 – 9 September
- 7 – 10 October
- 5 – 8 November
- 4 – 7 December
This is a long term alert, valid until at least December 2021.
