Abel Tasman National Park

STOP 1

The beautiful bays in Abel Tasman National Park are surrounded by forests and bestowed with sublime sandy beaches. This protected area is the perfect place for whiling away a few days hiking and kayaking in the surrounds of a lush landscape. In addition, there are opportunities to arrive at and explore the park by boat, as well as scuba dive in the crystal-clear waters. The long pathway that hugs the coast is an especially popular trek in this park.
