Governors Bay

Points of Interest
A short, scenic drive from Lyttelton is the beautiful Governors Bay.  The views are stunning as you drive Governors Bay Road.  Along with a secluded, sandy beach which is safe for swimming, there are the picturesque Taunton Gardens and Ohinetahi Gardens close by. 

Ōtoromiro Hotel, first established in 1870 is a chance to sip a drink or two or if you want to take a break you can book one of the seven guest rooms which boast all the modern amenities you could wish for, despite the historic setting.  The restaurant is open from 11.00am seven days a week.
