Our Location


Golden Bay - the "gem" of the Nelson Tasman region, sits on the northern tip of the South Island of New Zealand.  Adrift lies mid-way along the lush, coastal strip between Takaka and Collingwood and tucked between two of New Zealands great National Parks.

Situated on a private, sandy beach, which has safe swimming at both low and high tide sits Adrift in Golden Bay. 

All accommodation options are situated within a tranquil garden setting, overlooking the pristine, sheltered waters of the bay.
