Beautiful drive to Diamond Habour with one turn after another bringing up lovely coastline views. LOTS of road works and sometimes very lengthy delays. The village itself was quaint but nothing special to see. The gardens were pretty but again nothing outstanding. A good place to go for a Sunday Drive for an ice cream.

We took the bus to Lyttleton and the ferry to Diamond Harbour. There are a variety of walks signposted and we walked down to the beach and the up through the wood to the road. Lovely cafe, sat on a sofa and watched the world go by. Very relaxing friendly place.

Whether you travel by road or take the ferry from Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour is worth a visit for a meal, coffee or just an ice cream. Pretty as a picture especially on a sunny day.

If you are looking for a nice drive not too far from Christchurch ! Drive either through Lyttleton Tunnel or to the very end of Colombo Street & over the hill to Governors Bay. From there follow around the Harbour (right) to the other side to Charteris Bay & onto Diamond Harbour. You can call into Orton Bradley Park (in... More

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
