Picton Sound, Marlborough Region, New Zealand 

Nestled at the head of Queen Charlotte Sound in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, Picton is possibly New Zealand’s most pretty seaside town. Boasting one fifth of New Zealand’s coastline at its door and the best climate in New Zealand, rockets this charming little fishing village into a world class destination for international and domestic visitors to Marlborough.

Picton is all about the Marlborough Sounds with its relaxed island feel, secluded bays and crystal clear waters. The waterfront has one of the world’s best water views known for its ever changing colours and its marinas are a stunning testament to the importance of boats to this charming waterside village.

Regular boat trips from Picton’s waterfront jetties take you to stunning locations throughout Queen Charlotte Sound and wisk you away into a world where the sound of song birds, the breeze and gentle waves lapping alongside your boat become your day’s soundtrack.
