Akaroa, New Zealand

The French are known as the most romantic people in the world, so it is no wonder that the Akaroa (the first French settlement in New Zealand) is the perfect place for lovers. Take a stroll along the shore of the bay by the arm with a loved one. Here, in the sparkling clean, blue water, splash and frolic dolphins, penguins and seals. World-class facilities, quaint French confectionery and luxury restaurants - that's the ideal components of a secluded romantic getaway.
