Christchurch's best beaches

For those craving a day at the beach, the Kings Arms Hotel has an abundance of fine sandy beaches close by. We’ve created a map with locations and descriptions of our favourite beaches in the local area. Ask our reception team to print one off for you. 

We can lend you Harbour Hotels ‘Little luxuries’ for the beach: blankets, windbreaks, fold-up seats, kites to fly, and of course buckets and spades. On request, we’ll also pack you a luxury Harbour Hotels picnic, packed with home-made goodies, including a couple of local specialities.

And remember - we have a number of bikes you may borrow if you want to cycle there and back.

The details:

  • Hotel equipment use is complimentary
  • Full picnic (basket) £25 per person, half-picnic (backpack) £12 per person
