Explore the Kapiti Coast

Amazing nature, 40 kilometres of unspoilt beaches, a relaxed warm community and intriguing heritage.

Villages and towns, beaches and forest, birds and marine life, artists and entrepreneurs.  All close by and every corner has a new story for your stay.  

Otaki, Te Horo, Waikanae, Paraparaumu, Raumati and Paekakariki.

Explore Kāpiti’s easy, picturesque cycle and walkways or challenge yourself on mountain bike trails and escarpment walks.  Amble along the golden coastline on one of the many beaches or embrace the nature reserves and habitats full of native birds and plants.

Play golf, visit art galleries, visit Southwards Car Museum and the markets or just idle the time away in a café and watch the world go by.

 

Just 50 km north of Wellington with just as much history.  

Steam trains and trams, community museums, Queen Elizabeth Park and the US Marine Memorial, the dramatic 14-metre-high statue of the Virgin Mary 75 metres above the streets, all part of a rich heritage trail.

Solitary enjoyment or casual relaxation with a few friends.  Adventure in the Tararua Ranges or fishing for the big ones off shore. 

Home to Tuatara Brewing, Kapiti Ice Cream and Cheese, the Kapiti Chocloate Factory and many more artisan producers and growers.

A foodie heaven with fresh produce, markets, restaurants, bars and cafes.
