Paekakariki Hill Road

Paekakariki Hill Road, one of the most beautiful coastal drives

Paekakariki Hill Road is one of the most beautiful roads in Oceania. Located in the south-western North Island of New Zealand, this short coastal road was built in 1849. It's one of the most beautiful coastal drives in the world.

The surface of this narrow, winding hill road that connects Porirua with the Kapiti Coast via Pauatahanui, is asphalted. The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow.  The road is rewarding with awesome coastal views, but demanding driver's full attention at the same time.

This cliff-side road of New Zealand still parts the steep hills standing sentry over the sea. It has a length of 17,2km. This road is very exciting and sometimes very exposed and unsecured driveway in innumerable twists and turns.
