Banks Peninsula is a stunning area near Christchurch, New Zealand and is definitely a spot you want to visit if you are coming to the South Island of New Zealand for a holiday. Banks Peninsula incorporates many coastal townships including Akaroa, Duvauchelle, Takamatua and Port Levy all with something a little bit different to offer.
The drive through Banks Peninsula is definitely one to do as there is a lot to see and you could easily spend a day travelling from one small coastal town to the next. There are a lot of walks you can do in the area, most of which would have gorgeous views of the area. I am yet to do any myself, but I think they would have a lot to offer.
