Sumner beach is an ideal beach getaway for the people of Christchurch. This beach is laden with caves, one can walk through these caves unless stopped by high tides. Sumner Beach is a 400-metre stretch of white sand offering everything for a classic Kiwi day at the seaside.
The townside of the beach is the best to have some relaxing time with amenities nearby. The Scarborough to the east is best for surfers. The Sumner Promenade beside Cave Rock is the best point to start the exploration here. The promenade is a wide asphalt path on the seaward side of the seawall and there is another path on the land side. This path is usually busy with cyclists, walkers, joggers etc.
Sumner beach houses cafés lining the shore and bars where one can enjoy refreshing beer. It’s the kind of place locals go on a weekend in summer for a coffee, an ice cream or maybe some fish and chips.
