New Brighton Beach, New Zealand

New Brighton is a coastal suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand, about 8 kilometres east of Christchurch. It offers visitors a sandy beach with good surfing stretching 18 km from the Waimakariri River mouth in the north, to the spit in the south. It is home to the first surf lifesaving club in New Zealand.

TIP: If you come at the right time just before sunset, you may be lucky to see a stunning Maori sand art sculpted on the beach which you can view from the Pier.
