Kapiti Coast

Wellington - Kapiti Coast, New Zealand

The Kapiti Coast is the stretch of coastline on the south-west side of the North Island, north of Wellington and opposite Kapiti Island. The Kapiti Coast (once known as The Golden Coast) is less than 20km from Wellington and includes Paekakariki in the south to Otaki in the north. It includes the small towns of Te Horo, Waikanae, Paraparaumu, Raumati Beach and Raumati South.

Kapiti is most famous for its world-renowned bird sanctuary, Kapiti Island which lies about 5km off-shore. Kapiti Island is one of very few island nature reserves in New Zealand made accessible to visitors, giving them the opportunity to observe birds that are either rare or no longer on the mainland. more

A limited number of visitors are allowed each day, permits must be obtained from the Department of Conservation and transport to and from the island is only allowed through authorised boat services. The island featured in Peter Jackson’s film, King Kong (Peter Jackson is a Wellington local, which helped coined the 'Wellywood' moniker for the city).

The Kapiti Coast is also well-known for its quality, finely-crafted gourmet cheeses, notably its Kikorangi and Aorangi Brie. Other popular activities along the Kapiti Coast include walking, hiking, fishing and railway preservation (Paekakariki railway station).
