The beautiful landscape and picturesque locales attract a lot of visitors with their annual numbers exceeding more than 550,000. This makes Milford Sound one of the most visited places in New Zealand even though the city is located quite a distance from the main commercial areas, Milford Sound has a charm of its own.
Milford Sound also offers a lot of sporting facilities like canoeing and trekking. Though a small number of companies ferry people to the rest of the parts of this island country, Milford Sound offers an extravagant package at affordable prices.
Milford Bay is home to one of the underwater observatories and lets the tourist enjoy the viewing of black coral which is usually located in much deeper waters.
