Our Tour Guide will pick you up at your accommodation at around 7.30am. The walk starts in Marahau at about 8.45am before all Watertaxi services enter the park. We will follow the Coast Track to Tinline Bay for about 30 minutes. Here we turn off the main track and climb up the hill climbing steadily away from the coast and then steeply through regenerating forest. Later we will have stunning views over the coastline.

After about  2 h ½ hours Holyoake Clearing is reached, where there are a shelter and a camping area, where we can have lunch. Later we climb down to Anchorage Bay (1 ½ hours) to one of our favourite Abel Tasman beaches with golden sand. You can have a swim, a stroll along the beach or another short walk to Cleopatra's Pool is possible.  Plenty of time to enjoy the area before we head back with a Sea Shuttle to Marahau.  You will be back in Motueka at about 4.30pm.
