Kapiti Coast and New Zealand

Kapiti Island

About the Kapiti Coast

The Kapiti Coast is a set of coastal communities 50-odd km from Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. Because it is a bit away from Cook Strait which governs Wellington's windy weather, it is popular with families and retirees. It also has a vibrant arts community and a large number of workers who commute to Wellington.
