The private land at Torrent 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 its boundaries. There is no road access, so homeowners have to come in by boat or on foot. Even though Torrent Bay has a number of houses there are no shops or services at the bay. The Torrent Bay residents are actively involved in conservation to rid the area of plant pests and animals. At the back of Torrent Bay is a large tidal lagoon which can be walked across at low tide to save time walking to and from Anchorage, or there is a high tide alternative when this route cannot be accessed.
