Tasman Bay

Tasman Bay, Nelson, New Zealand.

The Abel Tasman national Park, named after the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman who visited the area in 1642,
can be explored by guided walks, sea kayak, cruise boat,
water taxi or freedom walking - experience penguins, seals, dolphins and native birds
all set in lush native forest and beautiful beaches.

Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealands smallest national park
and is famous for its golden beaches. These stretch from Marahau, near Motueka,
to Wainui Bay, in Golden Bay. There are two walking tracks; the beautiful coastal track,
 and the inland track through the hilly centre of the park.

Kaiteriteri Beach has golden sands and is a favourite holiday spot.
Takaka Hill and Mounts Owen and Arthur have  prominent cave systems which have
the largest and deepest explored caverns in the southern hemisphere.
