Here is where you begin the Abel Tasman Track, in Marahau, and named after the Dutch explorer who actually never set foot on these shores due to an altercation with the local Maori’s. This short, easy day of walking allows you to begin to absorb these scenic surroundings of lush beech forest and stunning sea views. Cross the Marahau river estuary on a causeway and follow the trail through open countryside and forest, with giant Karuka trees. Turn inland and walk through several gullies before emerging out to the sweeping sands of Anchorage Bay.
