Washed by the waters of the Tasman Sea, the town of Picton is located on Allports Island app. 30 km (19mi) from Blenheim, near the north-eastern part of the South Island. It is named after Sir Thomas Picton, the Welsh military associate of Duke of Wellington, known in connection with the Battle of Waterloo. The town is also associated with the famous writer Katherine Mansfied, who lived there. Picton is a starting point for holiday stays to the Marlborough Sounds, sought for fishing walking and diving (e.g. in the vicinity of wreck of the former cruise liner MS Mikhail Lermontov). There is a great selection of marvelous beaches such as Te Pangu Bay Beach Hakahaka Bay beach, Rarangi beach, etc. To discover the surrounding area, we can recommend to take a 45 minute drive along the scenic Queen Charlotte Drive to visit Havelock. Another good choice is a 2 hour drive to Kaikoura to watch whales and dolphins. There is a regular ferry service between Picton and the capital city Wellington.
