Your guide to Kaiteriteri

All About Kaiteriteri

Situated at the north end of New Zealand’s South Island, the Kaiteriteri region hugs the craggy coastline of Tasman Bay between Kahurangi and Abel Tasman national parks. The town of Kaiteriteri has been a popular holiday and recreational destination for New Zealanders since the 1920s, thanks to its golden-sand crescent-shaped beach lapped by crystal-clear waters and framed by granite cliffs. The area has long been an outdoor playground as it sits close to a large recreational reserve for water sports, hiking, and mountain biking. Visitors flock to the beach to kayak, try their hand at steering a waka — traditional Māori canoe — or whizz down the natural water slide at nearby Cleopatra’s Pool.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Kaiteriteri?

Like much of New Zealand, Kaiteriteri and the Tasman Bay area remain pretty humid all year. Temperatures peak in the summer months (December through February), a popular time to secure Kaiteriteri accommodations, and can drop below freezing in the winter (June through August). But that doesn’t put off visitors — you’ll still see paddleboarders in the bay in the winter. This is probably because the Tasman Bay area vies for the most sunshine in New Zealand, with more than 2,500 hours per year. In April, mountain bikers of all ages and skill levels descend on the town for the Big Bike Weekender, featuring enduro races.

What are the top things to do in Kaiteriteri?

Riding a waka

Touring the waters of Abel Tasman National Park in a traditional Māori canoe is a unique cultural experience that begins with a customary karakia (blessing) for your protection. The single- or double-hulled outriggers glide through the picturesque waterways of the park. During the trip, you’ll learn the art of paddling and how intrepid Māori sailors crossed the Pacific.

Great Taste Trail

The Great Taste Trail route along the Tasman Coast is one of only six regions in the world awarded gold status by the International Mountain Biking Association. The cycle trail runs for 108 miles from Kaiteriteri to Nelson, with stops at wineries and restaurants along the way. You don’t have to take on the whole thing — shorter excursions are available, some guided, with bike rentals included at towns on the trail.

Abel Tasman Coast Track

This 37-mile Abel Tasman Coast Track in Abel Tasman National Park, a few minutes north of Kaiteriteri, is a gorgeous place to enjoy a hike. The route is easy to access and is suitable for half or full-day hikes, or tramps, as Kiwis call them. Tackle a section or two at a time to take in golden sands with azure waters or dense native forest alive with birdsong. Be prepared for changes in elevation, and note that some sections are accessible only at low tide.
