Kaikoura New Zealand 🇳🇿is BREATHTAKING! Sublime Beauty & Unrivaled Sunsets
Join us as we explore Kaikoura — a small town on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island, blessed with some of the most breathtaking views and outstanding sunsets on Earth.
Nestled almost halfway between the ferry terminal in Picton and the city of Christchurch, Kaikoura makes a perfect day trip if you are up for an exciting whale watching or nibbling at some tasty crayfish on the beach overlooking a beautiful sunset.
A bright sunny day inspired us to take a trip down to Kaikoura and we immediately noticed all the construction work that was going on. New Zealand is one of the shakiest places in the world, and unfortunately, a recent earthquake literally raised the seafloor, leaving behind coastal highways and train tracks completely destroyed.
It didn’t take long before we noticed the local wildlife. We decided to stop at Ohau Point Look Out and had our first encounter with hundreds of seals and sea lions!
A short drive to downtown Kaikoura showed us some of the local businesses, including the many cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a refreshing drink or a tasty meal by the ocean.
Next, we stopped at an absolutely stunning picnic area where with the sound of the waves, we enjoyed a healthy lunch prepared by Chloe.
With some food in our bellies and energy levels restored, we continued our trip to the Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway. We decided to take a hike to the end of the walkway to watch the Sun setting over the mountains. And we have to say, this place really left us in awe, as we witnessed scenery we couldn’t get enough of. It’s a viewpoint like no other.
Our last stop was a whale-watching spot where it seemed like the sky and the ocean came together. It’s also a popular place for surfers and all the nature lovers out there as it offers endless beautiful panoramic vistas and incredible nature.
With so much beauty in sight, Kaikoura is a must-see destination in Nee Zealand.
