Bark Bay has a beautiful tidal estuary which you can walk along
Bark was stripped from trees to be used in a Nelson tannery, hence the origin of the name of the bay
Bark Bay is another golden beach in the Abel Tasman National Park. With all the logging that went on in the early part of last century it is really hard to see where it actually occurred, hence its name! Many day walkers use Bark Bay as a lunch spot - it is nice and sheltered and if the conditions do not permit you to sit on the beach there is a Department of Conservation hut to warm up in.
