Abel Tasman National Park

4.7
Pristine blue water, immaculate white sand, and a thick, temperate rainforest make Abel Tasman National Park a natural jewel on the northern coast of Tasmania's South Island. The country's smallest national park makes up for its size with a plethora of outdoor activities, which include hiking and some of the best sea kayaking in New Zealand. Penguins, petrels, herons, wild pigs, and deer call the park home, as do several seal colonies living on the rocks just off the coast. For many visitors, an Abel Tasman National Park holiday presents the perfect opportunity to grab some camping gear and spend several nights sleeping under the stars. Abel Tasman National Park is in Nelson-Tasman Region. With our international travel planner, New Zealand vacations can be built around trips to Abel Tasman National Park and other destinations in New Zealand.

Where to stay in Abel Tasman National Park

Abel Tasman National Park itself offers only a handful of accommodations, most around Awaroa Bay. There, you'll find some high-end lodge retreats, as well as an extremely well-appointed campsite right near the beach--both require advance reservations. Most visitors choose to stay just outside the park, either to the south in Marahau, which offers a selection of budget hostels and guesthouses, or to the north, in the coastal town of Pohara. For an "alternative" experience, consider staying in the hippie paradise of Takaka.
