Fodor's Expert Review Queen Elizabeth Park

Kapiti Coast Beach
Free

Paekākāriki's draw is the shore, but it's also the main entry point for Queen Elizabeth Park. Covering more than 1,600 acres, the park is edged by sand dunes and swimmable beaches. Walking, horseback riding, and cycling are popular activities here. Of special interest is the WWII U.S. Marines memorial and display.
