Additional Location Information

Wainui Bay

Situated at the top of New Zealand’s South Island and adjacent to the Abel Tasman National Park, Wainui Bay has a slow pace of life with an abundance of natural beauty - perfect for a holiday retreat.

Many elements of New Zealand life the way it used to be, are still remaining in Wainui Bay. There’s a small family run farm, lots of native birds and no shops and people still have time to go to the beach.
Abel Tasman National Park

Abel Tasman National Park is loved for its golden beaches, sculptured granite cliffs, and world-famous Abel Tasman Coast Track. With a mild climate and easy access its a good place to visit at any time of the year.

Getting into the Park

Water Taxis can be taken if you're looking to go further into the park or want to enjoy a tour from the water.

Totaranui Beach is accessible from Golden Bay Hideaway via Totaranui Road. Its one of a few places where you can drive deep into the park. Its about a half hour drive from Golden Bay Hideaway.
