Awaroa Beach

  • The Awaroa Inlet can only be crossed at low tide, up to one and a half hours before low tide and up to two hours after it

  • Awaroa Bay has a small settlement of holiday homes

  • Awaroa Lodge is located in behind the beach front

Back in the 1850's Awaroa was a thriving settlement with a boat building industry, saw mill and was being used by coastal traders. Nowdays it has a number of private holiday homes and has a very relaxed feeling about it. The private land at Awaroa Bay is unusual as it is surrounded by national park. The Abel Tasman National Park is the only national park to have residential housing inside it's boundaries. There is a lodge which has accommodation, restaurant and a bar which is open to the public (bookings advisable). Behind the beach is a large tidal inlet in which can only be crossed at low tide, up to one and a half hours before low tide and up to two hours after it.
