About New Brighton

The seaside suburb in Christchurch is known for one thing: SURF!

This is where all the surfers of the city come to get their fix after work or during their days off. In the most “English city outside of England”, the town truly feels like an English seaside resort with its long stretching beach and its gigantic pier.

The Pier standing over 7m tall above the high tide line and stretching 300m toward the horizon, the iconic New Brighton pier is one of the most impressive piers in New Zealand. Taking a stroll along to watch fisherman catching dinner, kids catching crabs, and surfers catching waves below is a must when spending time in New Brighton.

Surf New Brighton is the surf mecca of Canterbury. You’ll find surfers making the most of the gnarly waves bashing the New Brighton Pier almost every single day of the year. Even at Christmas! New Brighton is also home to multiple surf schools and surf gear rentals so even if you don’t have your board, you can rent one for cheap.

Saturday Markets held every Saturday morning (weather permitting) the New Brighton Market is a great place to find great food at a decent price and to truly shop local. The locals of New Brighton are friendly and approachable and will surely share recipe ideas if you are not sure how to use that kumara you are looking at.

The main feature of New Brighton is its extremely long beach. When heading to the pier you’ll see it stretch both ways for kilometres. Take off your shoes and feel the sand while casually strolling along the beach for an hour or two. It sometimes seems that this endless walk could take you all around New Zealand but you will be stopped with the Waimakariri River that runs through the whole Canterbury plains from the Southern Alps to feed into the great Pacific Ocean. Oh, and grab an ice cream before you go – that’s the perfect pair-up with a stroll on the beach.
