    Abel Tasman National Park which I had not much idea about looks beautiful. I would prefer a guided tour as am not too much of a hiker. The prospect of watching seals, blue penguins and bottle nosed dolphins is certainly enticing. Bird Watching should also be fun.

    What a magnificent vista! Now I see why Abel Tasman National Park is your favorite spot in New Zealand. From the azure clear ocean to the white sand, this national park is quite breathtaking. Seals and penguins are equally adorable! It’s fortunate that, in addition to enjoying the scenery, they also provide entertaining activities.

    I had heard a lot about Abel Tasman National Park and, now that I have seen the mesmerising photographs of this place it makes me want to visit this place so bad! Also, absolutely love the fact that no cars are allowed beyond a certain point, which I am sure is an experience in itself. Who wouldn’t want to get away from all the hustle-bustle, enjoy walking through the extensive trails, see the dolphins and of course the turquoise coloured water – sounds like a perfect dream. 
    This is so insightful, would definitely not miss a chance to visit this place. 

  4. I can make out how pristine the water is here. And the best is that it is not just beaches but a bit of trek and wildlife too. Loved reading about Onetahuti Beach and Tonga island. I definitely would not want to miss those in this trip.

    I have wanted to visit New Zealand for a long time. Abel Tasman National Park looks amazing, I need to spend a day relaxing at Bark bay.  I would especially love doing a cruise and seeing the blue penguins.

  6. Wow, this is such a beautiful destination! I love how the water is so crystal clear, the beaches look pristine, and you were able to see some wildlife. It’s also cool that you can venture inland for some more wilderness and exploration and experience the best of both worlds. I definitely want to see Able Tasman National Park for myself, now!

  7. Just by seeing the pictures, this looks like an amazing place to be visited at least once. Anyways, New Zealand has been in my travel bucket list for long and I have my list of places ready when I shall make a visit. Added Able Tasman National Park to it as well. This looks so beautiful and surreal

  8. Very comprehensive guide for the Abel Tasman National Park. I haven’t been to New Zealand yet, but I’ve heard about Abel Tasman. So many beautiful spots to explore in the park! I love that cars are not allowed beyond a certain point. That means cleaner air and way less traffic, but it also means that you’ll have to walk a lot!

    We have some many spots on our plan for when we finally get to re-schedule New Zealand.  But I see we will have to visit the Abel Tasman National Park when we do.  I can see why this pristine spot might be the benchmark for other beach or park visits.  I would love to do a visit longer than 4 days – if I could handle camping that long! Maybe we would start with a full day guided tour.  And find a way to enjoy some of those beaches separately.   Linda (LD Holland)

  10. Wow, this park looks STUNNING! New Zealand is high on my bucket-list. Your photos bring this place to life and would love to add this to my itinerary whenever I have the chance to go!

  11. I haven’t been to NZ but your pictures and discription of a sunny, pleasant place make me just yearning! I so need to go away…preferably to NZ since that’s the farthest I can think of 😉 Thanx for bringing a bit of sunshine and vacay feel into my life 😉

  12. wow I love this! I haven’t heard too much about this park before, but now I’m glad I can add it to my list of places to visit one day!

    New Zealand is one of the places we hope to visit soon.  Your photos make the beach look amazing!  Can’t wait to see it for real.  Thanks for sharing!

  14. Car free zone, pristine beach and stunning weather – who wouldn’t want to be in a paradise like this?  I haven’t been to NZ, but would love to visit it sometime in future! 

  15. What an incredible national park. It’s great to read that they are known for their flora and fauna, protected areas with no cars being allowed past a certain point and that coastal trail is stunning! Such a great find.

    For some reason, when I think of New Zealand I don’t think of these kind of beaches. It looks like something out of a postcard from french Polynesia! A bit unfair that the kiwis have the best of beaches, mountains and volcanoes. Adding this to my bucket list

  17. Your photos are stunning! This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. What an amazing experience.

  18. I had such an adventure when I visited Abel Tasman. I did take the 2-3 day kayak self tour. On the first night there was a massive storm which washed away some of the kayaks (thankfully not ours) & we were stuck for more days than we expected. Everything was wet, we ran out of food but it was still a very special experience & the company were so good & looking out for us. Actually very happy memories of the adventure it became!

    After reading the post I can understand why this park has become a benchmark of sorts. It’s amazing that the full coastal track takes about 3-4 days to cover – gives an idea about how expansive the trail is! Walking the entire length seems like the perfect bucket-list adventure and I love the idea of getting the chance to see dolphins or seals in the wild with a view of those turquoise waters along the way.

    This is brilliant, I’m heading to the South Island after the new year and your posts are brilliant. I saw some of your pictures on insta and had to check it out. I’ve enquiries about the campsite You mentioned and it’s currently booked out. Any other recommendation for accom near here in summer? 
    P.s booked the trip for the glaciers (the first Heli one on your article), not dating enough to ice climb just yet.
