Kaiteriteri Beach is found in Abel Tasman National Park and the coastal native bush is filled with bird song.
With glittering sands, golden sunshine and clear blue water, the sheltered and tranquil Kaiteriteri Beach is spectacular – so spectacular, in fact, it has been named as one of the world’s best beaches by CNN.com and The Guardian. The Tasman region has the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand, and even the sand is special – the high quartz content gives it a golden colour and sparkling effect. Keep an eye out for penguins, New Zealand fur seals and even dolphins.
Kaiteriteri Beach is for safe for swimming and perfect for families, with a kids’ playground nearby and plenty of ice creams. You can also fish or collect kaimoana (shellfish), try paddleboarding or kayaking, or hop on a water taxi.
