Raumati is the Māori word for summer, and summer sure is good here.
Raumati Beach village has a wide array of stores to tempt you. From fashion boutiques catering to men, women and children to homewares, art and gifts, the village will have you reaching for your wallet at every turn. Support local business at the same time as discovering labels you can only find in Kāpiti.
Grab a coffee to fuel your morning as you wander and shop. Or choose from one of the quality cafés, restaurants, and bars for a leisurely lunch taking in the hustle and bustle or gazing out across the sea to Kāpiti Island. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a visit to the Kāpiti Chocolate Factory and stock up on treats for the whole family.
For a change of pace set up camp at Marine Gardens, fire up one of the free BBQs or grab fish and chips from the village. The kids will love running wild at the splash pad and playground after taking a ride on the miniature train.
Join the locals down at the beach for a swim, or walk the dog along the waters edge for the ultimate relaxing stroll. Find your spot in the sand to soak up the sun, or throw your rod in the water and fish in the surf for your dinner. Top off your visit to the beach with a browse through a local artist's studio right at the waters edge.
