Unfortunately, we were too late to take a water taxi but the walk to Apple Tree Bay and back was really great. Lots of bays, waterfalls, delicious cakes at the cafe near the carpark.

Walking and Kayaking
Little used due to being so close to the start point of the Abel Tasman. So once the sun starts going down, you'll find it's generally pretty quiet here. The campsite is situated right on the beach, under the shade of some large pine trees, and overlooks Adele and Fisherman's Islands.
