Golden beaches, turquoise waters, sculptured granite cliffs, world famous coast track, native bush, marine reserve, walking, kayaking, relaxing and all the best describing words in the dictionary make up this beautifully scenic place! See for yourselves below. We sifted through hundreds of our own photos to give you only a snippet of what you can see and do in the Abel Tasman.
We spent a couple of days making use of the numerous water taxis that deliver you to a chosen spot along the coastal track. You then either walk part of the track, explore & swim or relax on the many golden beaches and get picked up later at either a different spot, or exactly where you started. You can do as little or as much as you please. Over our time there, we walked around 8 hours of the track, visiting many of the gorgeous bays, crossing the swing bridges and admiring the views from the hills. We also swam in the crystal clear, turquoise blue waters of a little bay called Bark Bay.
We saw many people who were walking the whole track, therefore staying in the DOC (department of conservation) huts along the way, some following the coastline in kayaks, or simply people catching the cruising boats or water taxis like we did.
