Raumati Beach, Kapiti Coast
Raumati Beach lies at the south end of the Kapiti Coast, about 45 minutes drive from Wellington. It was once a sleepy little coastal town that would easily be missed while driving up the coast. These days, Raumati is a great little place to visit. Cafes, restaurants, shops, and of course the gorgeous family-friendly beach complete with a monstrous children’s playground. It is increasingly becoming a very desirable place to live for those who work in Wellington, as real estate is much more affordable and it is so close to the city. Getting there will soon be even easier and faster once the new Transmission Gully is complete. At the south end of Raumati Beach is Queen Elizabeth Park; a collection of walking tracks that follow along the coastline. Great for walking, running, or mountain biking. I highly recommend it!
