We stayed in one of the beautiful apartments at Akama, It was spacious, clean and very modern. These units are not very old and are in a great location right opposite the boat harbour and an easy walk to the Esplanade cafes and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely come back if we return to the... More

Hi Chris F It was great to see you all having so much fun. It certainly helped that you stayed longer, allowing yourselves to explore our area and long beaches more. We'd love to have you back if those tough Victorian winters become too much to handle. Next time, maybe come a couple of weeks later and see the whales.... More
