Patons Rock beach
Just 5 minutes walk from the villas. Patons Rock’s safe, shallow, fine sand beach provides excellent swimming and kayaking opportunities.
Just 20 minutes from the villas is Pohara Beach. It’s a perfect swimming beach, and at low tide has been described by Lonely Planet as “a beach that at low tide is as big as Heathrow’s runway.”
Abel Tasman National Park
Patons Rock is close to the northern entrance to the Abel Tasman National Park, with its beautiful native bush and golden sand. Visit Tata Beach, Wainui (and its stunning waterfall walk), and even go all the way to Totaranui to see virgin forest, golden sand and views back into Nelson city and Tasman Bay.
