Located just 45 minutes north of Wellington city, the Kapiti Coast is a popular playground for Wellingtonians and visitors alike. The area takes its name from Kapiti Island, which lies off the coast of Paraparaumu. Kapiti Island is one of the treasures of Kapiti Coast, and visitors to this island sanctuary will get the chance to view some wonderful native birdlife, including kiwi, tui, weka, and kereru, the native New Zealand wood pigeon.

There is a good choice of gay- friendly accommodation for the gay and lesbian traveler ranging from hotels, guesthouses and back-packer sites at prices to suit most gay and lesbian traveler's budgets.

The Kapiti Coast extends from Otaki in the north to Paekakariki in the south, offering visitors a scenic backdrop of long sandy beaches, steep hills, bush, lakes and rivers. Other townships along the coast include Te Horo, Otaki, Waikanae, Paraparaumu, Raumati, and Paekakariki.

Otaki is a town in the Kapiti Coast District of the North Island of New Zealand, situated half way between the capital city Wellington and Palmerston North. It is located on State Highway 1 and the North Island Main Trunk railway on their routes between Te Horo and Levin.

Otaki has a strong Maori history and there are several marae (Maori meeting places) in Otaki town today. The town is built along the banks of the Otaki River, which flows into the Tasman Sea. It is divided into three main parts, Otaki Beach which is a mainly residential area, the larger and more inland Otaki Forks township which contains shops and residential areas, and along State Highway 1 near the railway station, the part known as Otaki Railway.

The surrounding district is largely agricultural, and the economy of the town is mainly based around service industries for the farming community. Today, market gardening makes an important contribution to Otaki’s economy, and fresh local produce is available throughout the town.

Otaki’s beautiful beach, backed by sand dunes, has good surfing and good spots for fishing. Inland from the town is Otaki Forks is the main western entrance to the Tararua Ranges. There are picnic and river swimming areas in this attractive spot, as well as several bushwalks. It is also an access point for the longer hiking tracks which lead into the Ranges. Kayaking and rafting adventures operate on the Otaki River.

So, if you're looking for adventure, the outdoors amidst
amazing scenery then Otaki, North Island, New Zealand as plenty to offer gay and lesbian travelers.
