Abel Tasman National Park
Abel Tasman National Park is a paradise of white-sand beaches. Home to native seals, dolphins and sea birds, it’s the perfect place for a kayaking trip.
Abel Tasman has one of New Zealand’s finest coastal National Park. At the very top of the South Island, explore the beautiful beaches, impressive rock formations and cheeky wildlife of glittering Abel Tasman National Park.
You can make a single day trip
The idyllic Abel Tasman Coastal Track links a myriad of crescent-shaped coves of glittering golden sand, washed by the crystal-clear waters of Tasman Bay. Wander along beaches that constantly invite you in for a swim and hike around headlands with commanding views. Fur seals are found along the coast of the park, particularly on the headlands at Separation Point and near Tonga Island. Little blue penguins feed at sea during the day and return to the park’s islands at night. Common dolphins are often seen playing in the waves.
