From boutique shopping to a beautiful beach, the settlement of Waikuku starts at State Highway One and extends down to an idyllic sandy coastline. This is where the braided Ashley Rakahuri River meets the Pacific Ocean and is home to the largest, least modified estuary in Canterbury. For fun on the beach, amazing shopping, walking, cycling and bird watching you can’t beat Waikuku - all just 30 minutes’ drive from Christchurch.
