Torrent bay is accessible by boat or by walking the Abel Tasman National park track. We can recommend Wilson Abel Tasman water taxi service to get you there. They run a fantastic service which leaves from Kaiteriteri. Or if you choose to walk the track it takes 3 hrs - 3.5 hrs and leaves from Marahau with bueatiful views along the way. There is a low tide track across to Torrent bay inlet or a high tide that takes approximately 45 minutes longer which goes past cleopatra pools.

Enjoy a lazy get away to a place that offers peace and relaxation with the option of switching gears and taking a short or long jaunt in the bush.

Watch the tide come in from the window fill the estuary. Cross the same estuary at low tide to visit the ever enchanting Cleopatra Pools.

Let kids be kids to explore, swim and make memories.

  • We can’t rate this place highly enough

    We can’t rate this place highly enough. Genuinely the most relaxing, lovely place I’ve ever stayed on a holiday. Would have stayed a month if we’d had the time.

  • It's a quaint, tastefully restored cottage in a simply sensational location

    It's a quaint, tastefully restored cottage in a simply sensational location. Everything you need is on hand - some is gas-powered and some is powered by solar panels. We loved our stay.

  • The bach was very pleasant in a peaceful environment

    The bach was very pleasant in a peaceful environment. We felt very special to be able to stay in the middle of a national park, so beautiful and quiet.

    Classic kiwi bach in a truly spectacular location! The Great Walk, proceeding both north and south, is literally out of the gate - we very much enjoyed several days exploring it. And the lagoon is only a couple steps out the gate - our whole family loved walking out of the door barefoot & playing here or at the bay beach. We especially enjoyed meeting local residents of the village. Upon arrival, be sure to find the trolleys at the lagoon jetty, beyond the south (left) side of the beach.
