Beaches north of Christchurch?

about 10 years ago about New Zealand

I'm heading from the north of the south island down to Christchurch. Are there any good beaches on the way?

    It depends what you're looking for in a beach. Much of the coast is rocky and wave-swept. Around Kaikoura is popular with divers going after crays. Nearer Christchurch are long greywacke-sand beaches with some good fishing, but I understand that the surfing isn't the best until you reach Christchurch. about 10 years ago

    Thanks for the tip! We went to Kaikoura and it was really stunning! The views of the snowcapped mountains and the beach were amazing! about 10 years ago
