Hiking tracks range from 30 minute strolls to multi-day expeditions, with hiking huts available for a stop-over. The beach is wide and windswept – a great place for an invigorating run or walk. The Kapiti Coast offers spectacular sea vistas, glorious sunsets, untouched native forest and dramatic landscapes, and is home to the Kapiti Island nature and marine reserve.
