Waikuku Beach

25 minutes away from Christchurch, Waikuku Beach in North Canterbury is a popular beach with a north easterly wind which is said to bring the best waves.

In 2015, Waikuku was named as one of New Zealand’s best beaches. The area has plenty of birdlife and even seals on the beach and dolphins in the surf. It’s been named as a ‘natural paradise’, perfect for fishing, camping, family gatherings, surfing and swimming.
