Nice and quite. Good cafe and easy to reach via the ferry which only takes about 5 minutes from Lyttelton... We rode from Lyttelton to Diamond Harbour and being short of time hoped on the ferry to return.

Black cat ferry from lytellton to diamond harbour, we had a kids go free deal, so $24.80 for the four of us. Short fast pedestrian only ferry 10 main journey. Hourly ferry, more at "rush" hour. Walk up the steps to the left of the causeway (toilets also there), then through a small reserve to the cafe's.

Visited Chalfont Cafe for lunch today. We had been to 3 other eateries but none 'fitted the bill' - until we got to diamond harbour. Divine Blue Cod cooked to perfection, attentive staff and very clean facilities. Highly recommend a visit - display cabinet full of tasty desserts etc

Diamond Harbour is a lovely quiet and very beautiful place. There were pictures of the house which used to be there before the earthquake which must have been beautiful. The ferry over from Lyttelton is a great way to visit this location.

Visiting our family from UK this was another little gem on my daughters itinerary. Taking the ferry from Lyttleon port, the views are breathtaking, whilst you are transported less than ten minutes to peace and tranquility, and this is what Diamond Harbour offers. You can walk taking in the scenery of mountains and sea views which are just stunning. There... More

A quick hop on a ferry across to peace and wonderful views. The little beach we were at was a bit too pebbly but very accessible. Wish the beach we wanted to get to was closer to the ferry point. There are no toilet facilities at the little beaches, so be prepared to change in your car.

Diamond Harbour is a short ferry ride from Lyttelton or you can get there by road from Chch or Akaroa. There are walking tracks along the cliffs and also a track up to the summit of Mt Herbert.The new "Chalfont"cafe is well worth a visit for refreshments or a meal.Their ice creams are awsome.
