    Entirely agree that this is the best bit of Abel Tasman. For anyone up for a full day walk, I’d like to offer this suggestion : start early at Wainui and head for Gibbs Hill, then down towards Totaranui, watching out for the Anapai turn-off. Then, when you’ve seen Separation Point, take in another beach : Whariwarangi, from where you can get back to Wainui in an hour or so. This circuit is about 22 kms, so slightly longer than Tongariro Crossing, but it feels a lot easier, because there are few steps, mostly just well-graded easy tracks. I always find a circuit aesthetically pleasing and although this isn’t a perfect one, only 3 kms are repeated. Oh and you also avoid eating dirt on the Totaranui dirt road.
