If you are unfamiliar with how New Zealand’s settlement system works, towns in the area often come with a partner settlement, and for the town of Paraparaumu, located along the Kapiti Coast, its partner settlement is the gorgeous Paraparaumu Beach, just directly opposite Kapiti Island. Together, they form part of the Kapiti Coast District, which ranks amongst the fastest-growing areas in the country. The Paraparaumu cluster is blessed with incredible scenery of lush greens and the turquoise ocean just beyond its shores. It is also home to numerous farms, gourmet food producers, a local car museum, and even serves as a gateway to Kapiti Island itself, where the number of visitors allowed is restricted due to its relatively tiny size. If you would like to be amongst all these natural attractions and more, check out our list of the top 11 Airbnb vacation rentals in Paraparaumu Beach, New Zealand.
