Abel Tasman

Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand's smallest national park - but it's perfectly formed for relaxation and adventure. A coastal paradise that you can walk through or explore by cruise boat, sailing catamaran, water taxi or sea kayak, visitors love the way the Abel Tasman National Park mixes physical exertion with beach life. Bursts of hiking or paddling are punctuated by sun bathing, swimming and sedate snorkeling.

Here, inviting sandy beaches fill the spaces between trees and tide line. Crystal clear streams tumble down mossy valleys to join the ocean. Granite and marble formations fringe the headlands, which are cloaked in regenerating native forest. Those who do crave home comforts can stay in luxurious lodges, but sleeping under the stars is regarded as the ultimate way to experience the spirit of the Abel Tasman.

Top Things to See and Do: 

  1. The Abel Tasman Coastal Track: 3-5 days to complete
  2. Take a guided sea kayaking tour
  3. Go sightseeing by water taxi
  4. Stay overnight in a private lodge or campsite

Travel Tips:

The park is accessible from Marahau and Kaiteriteri in the South, and from Golden Bay and Totaranui in the North. Most water taxi services depart from Marahau or Kaiteriteri and travel only as far north as Totaranui. There are comfortable private lodges at Awaroa and Torrent Bay. Bookings are required in peak season.
