Golden sand, sheltered cove with plenty to explore as you swim, or enjoy the sun from the beach. Also a load of beach side tourist companies who will take you on various tours of the coastal part of Abel Tasman National Park!

Gateway to the Able Tasman National Park and what an entrance, stunning golden sand and blue inviting water. You can rent kayaks and take a boat trip into the Park itself. There’s a motor camp and other accomodation options there like apartments

Awesome place to visit. The Beach is beautiful and great for a good walk. Kaiteriteri Lodge is just close to the Beach and their accomodation is pleasant in spite of being a BackPackers haven. The Beach is patrolled well to maintain safety. The tourists and...More

I have already answered this question a few weeks back. I do not know about bus schedules, I'm afraid, and in any case would recommend renting a car in order to get around New Zealand: the roads are generally quiet and the... More

Kaiteriteri Beach is located on a peninsula near Abel Tasman National Park. You could classify it as remote. Your best bet is to rent a car; we used Omega last year and they worked out great. While in the Abel Tasman area... More
