Anapai Bay

  • Abel Tasman National Park
  • Beaches & Bays

Anapai Bay is yet another glorious golden sand beach in the Abel Tasman National Park, although despite its location along the Abel Tasman Coastal Track, its beauty still considered somewhat undiscovered.

As New Zealand’s smallest, but most popular national park, the Abel Tasman attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to its shores every year, however, with Totaranui being the final access point for many water transport operators, the number of people who venture further north is much smaller.

Anapai Bay is a three-hour return walk from Totaranui, and can also be explored via the Gibbs Hill loop track. Encircled by mahoe and kanuka shrubbery, the beach is divided by the picture-perfect towering rock stacks at the northern end of the bay. You’ll truly feel like you’ve arrived in paradise when you arrive at Anapai.
