Welcome to Waikanae Beach Motel
Waikanae is the "Garden Centre" of the Kapiti Coast. Away from the suburban sprawl the village-like atmosphere makes it a relaxed destination close to Kapiti attractions.
Waikanae Beach is a popular spot for locals, holidaymakers and tourists of all ages, with safe swimming, fishing, boating and an idyllic place for a stroll along the white sands, looking out to Kapiti Island Nature Reserve. Waikanae River Scientific Estuary Reserve and lagoon are the habitat for native, introduced and migrant birdlife, which is a must see for the nature lover visiting the area. Mik (Michael) Peryer has become well known on the Kapiti Coast for his Kapiti Bird Tours, attracting visitors from all over the world.
With the Waikanae Golf Course next door and cafe/restaurants, children's playgrounds, public tennis courts, riverside walks, the Waikanae Beach Bowling Club and Waikanae Beach Tennis Club within a short stroll, the Waikanae Beach Motel is an ideal place to stay.
Waikanae Beach is also the home of many fine artists who open their doors for visitors to view and purchase their works.
A short drive from the motel to SH1 will take you to the Waikanae retail area with a variety of shops, banks, cafes and restaurants. Also in this area is the swimming complex, sporting grounds, Nga Manu Nature Reserve, Waikanae Museum and Hemi Matenga Memorial Park Scenic Reserve, the gateway to some spectacular walks through native bush for those experienced and-not-so experienced trampers.
