Sumner is a pretty coastal seaside suburb of Christchurch City, nestled in a beautiful coastal valley,
surrounded by rugged volcanic hill ridges, with cliffs descending to the sea.
Sumner has a fine sandy beach which is popular for surfing and swimming.
Along the beach is a wide esplanade, perfect for a walk while enjoying the sea views.
Sumner is approx. 10 km from Christchurch City Centre and has a range of walking and biking tracks
either in the bush and on the beach.
Take a drive into the hills and enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains and the city.
Enjoy the cafés and restaurants with fine food, browse the art and craft, boutique and antique shops.
