We came for the kayaking and were sad to leave when it was over. My partner and I will be coming back with a camper van so we can spend a few weeks here.

We only had a few hours on this beach in total during our stay in kaiteriteri. It's a lovely little beach, very clean with soft sand and a blue sea. Great place to see the stars at night.

My husband and I went to new Zealand to visit my brother and we visited kaiteriteri. So small but absolutely beautiful. The beach is stunning. We ate in the bar restaurant here and the food was lovely. So many different activities for all ages here.

We were here on a sunny day and the scenery was stunning. The whole place was very clean and there was plenty of parking available.

We've holidayed in Nelson over the last 10 years and this beach is our absolute favourite. There is no more beautiful, safe swimming beach, diverse sporting activity ( Abel Tasman cruises embark from here and paddle-boards and canoes are on hire), and for some, inexplicable reason, sunny days are booked, summer long. I should extol its virtues really ...bad move.... More

Tons of things to see and do from this beautiful bay beach. Canoe, kayak, stand up paddleboard or sign up for one of the many excursions and take a water taxi from here to Abel Tasman. Restaurants and a small store for you here too, well appointed to serve campers and visitors.

The beach is very nice and you can enjoy the wonderful view and the clear water. You have a nice promenade to walk along. However relaxing tehre are more private and quiet beaches nearby.
