Paekakariki, NZ

Paekakariki, New Zealand, is located on the Kapiti coast on the southwest side of the North Island, just a short and scenic train ride from Wellington, the country's capital.

Because Wellington lacks good budget accommodations, Paekakariki is an excellent choice, do to its close proximity to the city, its abundance of beaches, parks and activities and a warm and wonderful backpackers.

If you are planning to visit the gorgeous and culturally thriving city of Wellington, I highly recommend you stay in Paekak (as the locals call it) if not just for a night or two.
