Message from the council

Kāpiti’s beaches and rivers have you covered if you’re looking to take a dip, go for a surf or just splash around. They’re generally pretty clean and it’s usually safe for a swim, but sometimes the weather can change that.

You can check if it’s safe to swim any time this summer on our website

Updated daily, the Land Air Water Aotearoa (LAWA) website also has information about water quality at all of the best swimming spots in Kapiti and around New Zealand.
