Paekakariki is located at the southern entrance to the Kapiti Coast and according
to local real estate agents, properties in the seaside community are tightly held.
Any Kapiti real estate with a sea view is usually snapped up reasonably soon after
coming on the market. Although not a big town, Paekakariki is a popular beach side community
with as small shopping village adjacent to the main trunk railway line link Wellington (the
capital) with Auckland.
Paraparaumu is just 10 minutes to the north by car, or as many locals do, travel by
train to Paraparaumu where Coastlands Shoppingtown is just a two minute walk away from the
station. Trains services from Paekakariki to the Paraparaumu, Porirua City and Wellington
City are very frequent and reliable. Improved infrastructure can only help property values on
the Kapiti Coast. Local real estate values vary depending on proximity to the sea,
railway line and the age and condition of the property.
Like all other beaches on the Kapiti Coast, the Paekakariki beach has plenty of sand
and is a great walking experience, especially in a howling north westerly. Beachcombing is a
popular activity for young and old alike. You'll find lots of interesting driftwood and
shells along the way. The Paekakariki Surf Lifesaving Club are regular participants at
national championships and get plenty of experience battling the sometimes heavy pounding
waves coming off the Tasman sea.
Paekakariki beach can be a very busy place over the warm summer months attracting
beach-goers from throughout the Wellington region. As most locals will tell you, Paekakariki
Beach lacks the protection of Kapiti Island and is more exposed than others Kapiti Coast
beaches like Paraparaumu Beach, Waikanae Beach and Raumati Beach. The waves breaking on
Paekakariki Beach can be spectacular to watch with swells reaching up to 2 metres. Very
invigorating and a joy to watch if you own Paekakariki real estate overlooking the sea.
The Paekakariki Surf Lifesaving Club do patrol the beach over the summer period, and it
is always best to follow the instructions and swim between the flags. Holes and rips can be found
along the beach. Some local fishers do surf-casting off the beach in the hope of catching Kahawai
and Snapper (which often troll the shallow trench along the coast).
Just north along the State Highway 1 (about 5 minutes by car) is Queen Elizabeth
Park and the Tramway Museum featuring old Wellington Trams and buses. It is possible to catch
a tram from the entrance to Queen Elizabeth Park down to the beach and back again. The cost
is minimal. Queen Elizabeth Park is a good location for a picnic or walk along the sand
dunes. During World War Two the American Marines had a big camp at Queen Elizabeth Park,
Paekakariki township is only a short 20 minute drive from Porirua City, or around 30 minutes from
Lower Hutt. Many people like to take the scenic route over the Paekakariki Hill Road to the Hutt
Valley. There is a spectacular lookout over the entire Kapiti Coast north to Waikanae and beyond.
The Hill Road is a steep windy climb. If you are considering buying real estate along the Kapiti
