Abel Tasman is one of the sunniest places in New Zealand. A kiwi summer is a given in Nelson. Lastly the sheer variety of holiday activities that can be undertaken with families and friends picking and choosing from:
- Family friendly kayaking or making sand castles on the beach
- Water sports active adventures from scuba diving, sailing, canyoning, and multiple day kayaking trips
- Land based active holidays including abseiling to pampered guided walks
Abel Tasman is a natural theme park without the noise or roller coasters rather the adrenaline rush is nature on full display offering a palate of activities to suit individual choice and needs of the many visitors. Maori have occupied the Abel Tasman coast for over 800 years, with archaeological sites in the park unearthing pits, terraces, defensive sites, gardens and stone floors. In the mid 1800’s, a number of settlers lived along the coastline, with the main method of transport being the sea. Today there are still few roads in Abel Tasman National Park, and water taxi or kayak is the ideal way to commute between beaches. The park’s gateways, perhaps you will just stay put entranced by Kaiteriteri, Motueka and Marahua.
