February 14 is nearly upon us, and love is in the air. Although you may associate other cities with love and romance, Christchurch still has some pretty romantic spots. Whether it’s taking a sunset-coloured walk or chilling on grassland, there’s many romantic places to kiss in Christchurch.
1. Corsair Bay
With one of the best beaches, you’ll be treated to stunning clear waters, lush grassland to take in some sun and shores to paddle in. Yep, this is an idyllic spot for a make-out section with your partner.
2. New Brighton Pier
A favoured sunset place by us, there is nothing more romantic than strolling the longest pier in Australasia, indulging in endless conversations with your partner. Certainly, one of the best places to kiss in Christchurch as day turns to night.
What better way to spend a day out in Christchurch than surrounding yourself with nature and your special someone by your side. Waltz through the greenery, admire colourful plants and trees, before setting up a picnic. Indeed, those butterfly feelings will appear in no time.
4. Waikuku Beach
Another one of the best beaches just a little drive out of Christchurch. It’s the perfect place to hangout for the day with bae, and certainly isn’t a bad setting to show a sign of affection every once in a while.
5. Cashmere Hill Lookout
Another great spot to catch an epic sunset, overlooking Christchurch, the Banks Peninsula, Southern Alps and more. Watch in awe as the sun disappears, the city lights turn on, and wait for the perfect moment to go in for a smooch with your love.
Book a 45-minute private charter Edwardian-style boat to glide down the Avon river. Boasting a romantic ambience, you’ll see plenty of sights, in a relaxed setting, presenting one of the most unique places to kiss in Christchurch.
7. Port Hills
Port Hills mountain range is an excellent choice for a walk, with lots of scenic spots to soak in the beauty of Canterbury. Likewise, it’s one of the most instagrammable places in Christchurch. With stunning views out to sea, epic bike trails, and more…this place has it all. Definitely, you and your partner will be spoiled for options.
