Abel Tasman is a beautiful National Park, near Nelson,on the South Island of New Zealand.Enjoy hiking (tramping) walking on the unspoiled beach. It is mind boggling to see so much unspoiled coastline that has been covered by man with only footprints. You will see more birds than people.


Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Stunning & pristine native bush & beaches
  • Cons:Out of shape people miss seeing it all on foot
  • In a nutshell:A nature lovers PARADISE !

    I really enjoyed this page on Abel Tasman National Park. You did a great job and the pix are awesome. Aqua Taxi & Kayaking look like great ways to see the beautiful beaches & coastline.

    Scary to learn that New Zealand has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Thanks for explaining why. This area looks really beautiful --- for those who keep their hats on and keep re-applying sun-blocker.
