As we stayed in Blenheim during the festive season, we focused on day trips and exploring Marlborough's local beaches, rivers, and towns.
Picton and Whites Bay are two of our favourite day trips in the region and I am excited to share some pictures and information for both destinations. Maybe next time you travel past Blenheim, stick around for a few extra days, and explore Picton or camp out at Whites Bay. It’s well worth a visit!!!
Above: The snout trail in Picton is a short 2-3 hour coastal walk offering stunning views of the sounds and is a good choice for a quick morning hike or run.
Picton is a great daytrip destination from anywhere in Marlborough and offers a variety of activities to visitors. We usually start the day with a hike or a swim and return to town for food and drinks afterwards. The foreshore has a great playground for kids and the small, relaxed town offers good food and wine. What would you want more?

If you are staying in Blenheim and are looking for a relaxed beach day, Whites Bay must be the best choice. The bay is located a short 20-minute drive north and offers a beautiful sandy beach, campsite, and native bush surroundings.
"This camp has lovely scenery and is close to a surf beach at Pukatea/Whites Bay. Go walking, fishing, swimming or kayaking from here."
