Located between Golden Bay and Tasman Bay in New Zealand's South Island, Abel Tasman National Park is the country's finest coastal National Park and is perfect for travellers who seek both relaxation and adventure. Established in 1942, Abel Tasman National Park was named after the first European seafarer and explorer to reach New Zealand - Abel Tasman - in 1642. The park presently covers over 225 square kilometres of land area and includes lush vegetation, beautiful pristine beaches and clear blue lagoons. The area features a mild climate, making it an excellent place to visit throughout the year. The park is usually accessed via the small Marahau settlement, with the nearest prominent town being a few kilometres away.
