Ngakuta Bay is well known as a holiday destination, as it offers great fishing for the boaties, as well as a new jetty and a boat ramp with lots of parking for trailers. For those who enjoy waterskiing you have a designated takeoff area, also great for kayakers and a safe sandy beach for swimmers.

We have family games, lots of books and magazines,some toys, and three large TVs and 2 Dvd players with selection of golden oldie DVDs. We have 2 older canoes plus one new for your use, but you must bring life jackets.

Just 14 km away is Picton with restaurants and boutique shopping, then there is Blenheim with its wine tours, and the Queen Charlotte track only 30 min away for those hikers and bikers.

Herons Nest offers peace, quiet and privacy. It even has its own mancave complete with bar fridge (bring your own beer), dart board (bring your own darts) and comfortable seating. Great for boys of all ages!

    Beautiful location only a short walk from a lovely bay on Queen Charlotte Sound. We were blessed with fine weather and did not stray far from the bach, The road from Picton is twisty to say the least, but well worth it, find the Link pathway and enjoy a 6km walk from Wedge Point back to Ngakuta Bay. We saw sting rays, and enjoyed a short walk to see the glow worms in the evening. The bach is well appointed with absolutely everything you need for a self-catering break.

    We had an amazing time the accommodation was great. Ngakuta Bay is a special place. We thought Herons Nest was better than the online photos. Great place.
