My favourite place in New Zealand! Lovely walking through the forest with stunning views of the bays & inlets. We took a rib boat ride along the coast & walked back to Kaiteriteri.

Great hiking experience, you’ll get a lot of variety on the track (hills, beaches, a swing bridge, small waterfalls,...) and the views over the bays (e.g. Torrent Bay) are simply amazing. Totally worth the drive up there!

Our most favorite stretch was Bark Bay to Anchorage, simply amazing views, quite steep up at times and crossing hanging bridges. Consider: Tide Time Tables as it can lengthen/shorten your hike by 1.5 hrs. Should you hike only parts of the Track & return by...More

Walking under New Zealand native bush, golden sand beaches, crystal clear water, kayaking, NZ Fur Seals, easy well laid out paths, some hills and a couple of decent lodges along the way - it's awesome, don't miss it!

We spent 2 days in Abel Tasman (stayed near Bronte), we got water taxis along the coast and to beaches to hike sections of the trail, rather than doing the whole 4-5 day hike. The great thing about that is you can decide how far...More

No restaurants on the track other than Awaroa. Every beach is fabulous though my favourite is Te Pukatea. Aim to do walks of around 3 hours. Sea kayaking is a good option.
