Just 50km north of Wellington, the Kāpiti Coast is an idyllic destination featuring stunning unspoiled beaches and a warm coastal climate. Take a trip to an island nature reserve with Kapiti Island Nature Tours where you can take home memories of cheeky kākās, takahē, tuatara, gecko or spotting kiwi at night; sample local cuisine and craft beer at the Tuatara craft brewery in Paraparaumu; and hike the stunning Escarpment Track for memorable views across the region.
