Not too much further north from the Kapiti Coast is the rural town of Levin (the accent is on the second syllable).
Levin’s main street is also the national highway which could give the impression that it is just a place to pass through, but that is far from true. The beach at Waitarere even offers shipwreck to explore and not every locale can offer one of those.
As a heads up, probably only my family will recognise the significance of today’s haiku so apologies to everyone else!

Loved Levin living.
