Insider’s guide to... Abel Tasman
BEST PHOTO OP: There’s an elephant in Watering Cove – really! Go to the southern end of the little bay and look for his head and long trunk.
BEST PIZZA: Again, really! Try the smoked salmon one from the pizzeria in the garden of Awaroa Lodge, near the beach the New Zealand public bought in 2016. WHEN TO GO: Either end of summer, to avoid the crowds – it’s popular! Check out abeltasmankayaks.co.nz.
