Akaroa Things to Do: 93 reviews and 230 photos
As said in my information about the roads on Banks Peninsula (in General tips), stop instead of crash if you really want to fully enjoy the spectacular views of Banks Peninsula, especially along the Scenic Drive which is a summit road that meanders around Akaroa Harbour at high altitude. In some parts you have the view of the harbour on one side and to one or more of the northern and eastern bays on the other side of the road.
Taking the fantastic scenery into account, quite some special lookouts with nice seats have been created along the road, as it is rather dangerous and sometimes impossible to stop for taking a picture. Have a break, soak in the fresh air, and enjoy the unforgettable views.
