Where you’ll be

Paraparaumu, New Zealand

Paraparaumu is the gateway for tours to predator-free Kapiti Island, the marine reserve, Waikanae estuary and the Escarpment Walk.
(The walk to the Kapiti Island tour ferry is 15 minutes.)

The beach, which stretches from the Waikanae estuary to Raumati has gently sloping sand and is a top spot for winter strolls, or summer dips in the gentle surf.

There are great restaurants at Paraparaumu Beach, and a super little cafe and supermarket within a five minute walk.

We love to meet people and share our beautiful location here on the Kapiti Coast. We enjoy travelling New Zealand, mostly in our camper van, and encourage everyone to enjoy our amazing country. I write a blog for women over 50 who want to be inspired in their work, seek a sense of financial freedom, and enjoy a life filled with fun and adventures.

We are lucky to have access to great local produce here on the Kapiti Coast.
