Bay of Many Coves
No roads lead to this destination, which has a decidedly evocative name, on the northern side of Queen Charlotte Sound. Instead visitors need to take a short ferry ride from Picton or arrive by foot on the Queen Charlotte Track. Several of the dolphin species common in the Marlborough Sounds can be spotted in the cove. If you are inspired to return to Queen Charlotte Sound for a longer stay, the bay is home to both a luxury resort (also called Bay of Many Coves) as well as a free campsite.
