- Summer in Akaroa is a sunny, friendly, bustling paradise. Swimming out to the platform in the sheltered bay is always fun, as is meeting for a
few drinks and a bite to eat at the waterfront bars. There are always lots of beautiful yachts to look at, some even for hire! Don't forget the tours out to see and swim with the Hector's Dolphins. It's a beautiful time of year to go tramping, and there are free as well as private
track options ranging from 40minutes to 4 days. Whatever you do though, slather on the your 30SPF sunblock!
- Akaroa hosts a Farmers Market every Saturday, 9.30-1pm, next to the Akaroa 4 Square Supermarket in a little park known as Fletchers Hub. Akaroa has a great
micro climate so expect to see locally grown herbs, honey, fruit, vegetables, nuts, olives, olive oil and gorgeous flowers; plus divine pickles and preserves, sauces and jams; cheese, breads and pastries too.
- Akaroa offers a wide variety of dining styles - from the traditional fish n chips on the pier to superb fine dining and everything in between. Restaurants, cafes, bistros, a bakery, a butcher a chorizo maker - there is no shortage of delicious food in Akaroa. Make sure you tip your hat to the towns origins and try something French at least once!
