The Kapiti Urban Area is a statistical area defined by Statistics New Zealand to cover a group of urban settlements on the Kapiti Coast.

Kapiti Urban Area is classified as a main urban area because its population exceeds 30,000. The Kapiti Urban area is in the Kapiti Coast District and the Wellington Region. The Greater Kapiti Coast District includes Te Horo and Otaki.

The largest of these is Paraparaumu. Raumati may be considered a suburb of Paraparaumu or a separate town in its own right. There are no legal definitions for towns in New Zealand.

Kapiti is better described as a commuter area of Wellington than an independent city.
