The Coastal Track is perfect for half-day, full-day or multi-day walking adventures.

The Abel Tasman is easily accessible so can be experienced in half a day if that is all of the time you have available. Full day walking trips are even better, but multi-day adventures can be the most rewarding and inspiring outdoor experiences you will ever have.

The Coastal Track has tent-camping sites and Department of Conservation huts dotted regularly along its entire length, all of which are located within a stone’s throw of the beach. This makes the Abel Tasman perfect for longer, overnight hiking adventures.

The track is well formed and is gently undulating. This means you do not need previous experience in the wilderness to safely and comfortably complete the entire track, or the section that holds the most appeal to you personally. People doing multi-day hiking trips will usually walk the track in one direction and then water taxi back to their departure point, rather than retracing their steps again on foot.
