In 1992 the Kapiti Marine Reserve was created and is now abundant with marine life. It's a great place for diving and has boosted recreational fishing. It's not uncommon to see schools of Kahawai splashing about off the beach, which quite often can be caught with a good cast from the beach. Kayak and boat fishing are also popular. For more information on Fishing please visit our Fishing Information Website. On a still day you will see the boat trailers empty with many boats out on the water. Raumati Beach is used for many organised activities such as the Kapiti Women's Triathlon, held annually in March. The course runs through Raumati Beach and Paraparaumu, centered around Weka Park.
Along Raumati Beach front there are many beautiful houses. Many of these are holiday homes and some are also baches for renting. Most front the beach with superb views overlooking the ocean and Kapiti Island.
There is something for everybody at Raumati Beach.
