These lie at the North-eastern point of the South Island between two sparkling bays. Calm waters and a rustic landscape mark the Marlborough Sounds. The sounds are a little difficult to access except perhaps the most popular Queen Charlotte Sound and the Pelorus Sound. One of the perks of this place is that it isn’t very “touristy”. You won’t find a lot of crowds to share the beauty of this place. The bays make for a romantic place to cruise. But, I would rather suggest that you hire a Kayak and explore the waters yourself. The waves are mostly calm and the view around is a treat for the eye!
