Often referred to as the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park, Kaiteriteri is famous for its turquoise water and golden sand beach. This attractive beach town is 13 kilometres from Motueka.

In summer, you’ll find locals and visitors, basking in the sunshine, dining at the beachfront restaurant or enjoying one of the many water activities on offer.

But winter is one of the most beautiful times to explore the park, on land and on water. The sea is calm, the morning air is crisp, and the local wildlife comes out to play.
