Picton Sound, Picton

4.6
#3 of 6 in Nature in Marlborough Region
Visit a place of notable natural beauty at Picton Sound, a small town known for its water activities and scenery. Head here to enjoy secluded beaches nestled between the blue sea and the green mountains. The calm water is perfect for sailing, kayaking, and ferry rides, or just walk around the bay while stopping for coffee and snacks along the shore. For more shopping and dining, head into the town center. Climb to one of the nearby hilltops for beautiful photo ops, too. Plan my Picton trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
