So scenic, and largely ‘untouched’. For lunch/dinner, in Akaroa (wharf area) ‘La Thai’ is run by a genuine Thai family and the food is delicious.

A wonderful scenic area with stunning views from the summit ridge. The roads are narrow and twisty so it will take you longer than you might expect, especially if you stop at the small towns and museums and have the odd coffee. Allow a day and I dont think you will be disappointed.

A very scenic drive to Akaroa well worth the time and effort. The scenic alternative is not for the faint hearted but the views are spectacular.

Well worth spending a few days on this Peninsula as each bay has different things to see and do with a mix of culture and wildlife.
