Yes, there are over 10 terrific restaurants ranging from the world famous Akaroa Fish and Chips to the fantastic French food of C’est La Vie. There is also a grocery store and dairy nearby if you’d like to cook for yourself.
We have free mountain bikes for guests. There is a short ride to the lighthouse, or for the more energetic you can ride to Onuku, the Maori village that is about 7 kilometers from Akaroa. There is some mountain biking in the Garden of Tane reserve, which is filled with dirt paths and trails.
