Raumati Beach NZ


The Sat Nav co-ordinates are -40.917712, 174.978774


Raumati Beach is just under an hour by car from Wellington and it is a great seaside town. If you are there early in the morning you have to treat yourself to the breakfast special at the Busy Bee Cafe.

Getting to Raumati Beach is easy. Head North from Wellington on Highway 1 through Porirua and turn left onto Raumati Road just before Paraparaumu. Turn right when you get to the village and then turn left for the beach where you can park your car.


The sunsets on the beach are really spectacular as it faces west towards Kapiti Island slightly to your right and only a couple of kilometres offshore. Slightly to your left, weather permitting, you can see the peaks of the mountains just short of Blenheim on the South Island.

Kite Surfing is popular along the beach.
