Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely view of this incredible split rock from our cruise boat. Certainly worth looking at this phenomenon of nature. Highly recommended

It’s a winding drive to get there, and also a 15min walk through bush/forest before opening out to the beach. There is a fair number of steps, first down and then up on your way back. The rock is interesting but a bit far out from the beach.

It’s a long drive for a rock…..so if you are in the area swing by. I would not go out of my way honestly. Stop at Kaiteriteri.

Insta-worthy rock formation that is best explored by kayak. Access to view can also be made via the adjacent beach or by Sea Shuttle (water taxi).

Some say it resembles an avocado more, but was given the moniker by an apple farmer during an advertising campaign.

Our guide explained it was the most photographed rock in the world, which may be a slight exaggeration - Uluṟu, Twelve Apostles, Horseshoe Bend, Wave Rock, Monument Valley immediately come to mind.

A much better beach than Kaiteriteri, although harder to access and not the amenities.

But if you want lovely outlook and a beautiful beach this is it.

Spit Apple rock is amazing picturesque and seems to attract plenty of attention from kayakers.

There is a basic toilet just off the beach. The beach is accessed by a 10-15min walking track.

Best seen from the sea

The water taxis to Abel Tasman park make a detour in to have a look

Try to be there at high tide

We saw this from the Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle cruise so we were able to get nice and close on a beautiful day on the water and learn some of the history and reason why this was believed to have split. You can drive close to it from Kaiteriteri I believe and it is a short kayak paddle.

Stunning, a great swimming beach clear water and calm.
There’s a toilet and shade from
Trees.
However check the tides if it’s king tides there is no beach and your 10
Minutes walk will be disappointing.
