Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What a lovely beach to take a stroll, breathe in the fresh ocean air, and just take it all in. The beach is clean, quiet, and well manicured. Parking was not difficult and people were happy to be there.

    A fantastic afternoon walk with stunning views, good parking, nice trials with fabulous scenery 360° from the ocean to the mountains and a really nice breeze.

    This water park is a great place for little kids. Lots of fun activities running in and out of the water hoses and buckets. Good tables around a out for picnics too. Good variety of slides for all ages too

    Recently stayed at the Kiwi Beach Bach which is situated directly opposite this park. My family had an awesome experience, The park is a credit to the community, very safe and well utilised by all accounts. Perfect for picnics and family time with the BBQ's in operation.

    With a nice river running through it, it’s a popular local spot for lids to play in the water in warmer weather. However it is prone to algae bloom when the river slows down so not so good then.
    Great place to play a family game of circuit kick a ball around as it has a nice green grass expanse with trees for shade in hotter weather.
    Popular with schools for outings being close to Paraparaumu and having good parking and public toilets.

    Coastlands has a nice range of shops and eateries. It has a relaxed feel and was not too busy when we visited. Plenty of parking too.
