Abel Tasman is most well known for it's stunning golden sandy beaches and amazing National Park. Pretty much anyone that visits will fall in love with the place, especially as the climate is fairly mild all year round meaning any time of year is good to visit. One of the most popular activities to do here is kayaking, but the coastal track (which can take 3 to 4 days) is one of the best walks you can do in New Zealand, and also one of the easier ones, with some stunning coastal scenery and beautiful beaches on the way.
