Okains Bay

Situated 15km from Akaroa, Okains Bay is the largest eastern bay on Banks Peninsula. Safe swimming beaches, estuary and beachside camping ground provide an idyliic setting to getaway from it all. Okains Bay is also home to Okains Bay Maori & Colonial Museum housing rare Maori artifacts. Okains Bay is also fondly known for Waitangi Day celebrations which were first held at the museum in 1977, the longest continuous celebration in the South Island.
