Adjacent to the mighty Tararua Ranges, the Kāpiti Coast invites you to get outdoors, but you choose the pace: beach stroll, mountain walk or perhaps a horse trek calls your name. You will find tracks and trails ranging from easy to epic, including an award-winning MTB park and the Paekākāriki Escarpment track; part of the Te Araroa Trail.
Across the channel lies Kapiti Island - an ecological jewel in Aotearoa’s crown. A visit to the Island offers a unique opportunity to experience some of New Zealand's endangered wildlife and appreciate the lush flora and fauna of this natural taonga. Untouched nature can also be found on the mainland at Ngā Manu Nature Reserve where you can listen to and see bird life enjoying their beautiful surroundings.
Stay amongst the trees in a handcrafted cabin, listen to the waves crash as you sleep in a beachside bach or get remote and glamp. Whether it’s a romantic getaway, a trip with friends, a break with the kids. You deserve an extra long weekend to continue the Summer fun. You can find just the right place to stay.
Fill Your Cup (And Your Plate)
With a wonderful selection of markets, eateries, artisan produce and liquid goodness, the Kāpiti Coast has no shortage of perfect spots to sip a brew and enjoy locally-sourced fare. Waterfront views or a place to muse, there are plenty to choose and enjoy while soaking up the sounds of local music.
