Kaikoura is a town in New Zealand.

The Maori name is Te Ahi-kai-koura-a-Tama-ki-te-rangi


A stunningly beautiful seaside town on the east coast of the south island approx half-way between Blenheim and Christchurch. Beautiful crescent-shaped bay right in town, great for swimming. Fantastic place for beach combing. Just north of town the mountains literally meet the sea.

Things to to see and do

  • Beachcombe for interesting pebbles on the beach behind the shops.
  • Walk out to the seal colony.
  • Walk around the peninsula from the seal colony to South Bay. Huge variety of birdlife.
  • Hike up Mount Fyfe - strenuous full day hike.
  • There are many commercial tours operating eg ‘Swim with Seals’, ‘Swim with Dolphins’, ‘Whale Watch Tours’, "Kayak with Seals'.
  • Highly recommended is a trip with Kaikoura Kayaks - 0800 452 456 for bookings and info.
