Emily’s top picks:

  1. Berry picking at Berrylands on a summer's day followed by their famous real fruit ice creams
  2. Kaiteriteri Beach. Sun, Sand, Walks, Kayaking, Paddleboarding – it has it all!
  3. Walks around Monaco Point gets me every time! When you think the view has gone keep going to the top of the point and it’s all there waiting for you. Take a jacket though – it gets pretty cold!
  4. Head to Tahuna Beach for a sunset walk to really appreciate its beauty
  5. Free tour at the local Pic's Peanut Butter Factory where you get to make your own peanut butter – a great outing for the kids! It get’s very busy so bookings are required.
  6. Burger Culture has a great range of burgers that are cheap and tasty – you don’t want to miss out on Nelson's go to burger joint!
