Sumner, Christchurch: 8 reviews and 12 photos

  Cave Rock from the Scarborough side
by fishandchips

Sumner has undergone a beautiful transition over the last 15 years and is now a thriving place. The mainstay of Sumner is its beach and the small main street with a nice old movie theatre and food options. Along the beach is Cave Rock and further down you get to Scarborough with its small park and kids pool.

If you carry on and turn left you start to go up a hill and takes you to Taylers Mistake (a distant relative of mine) which is more the grommit's paradise with a big surfy crowd - hang 10 dude.

Address: 15 minutes from City Centre to the east
Directions: Go east young man...........

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
