A little melancholy as the ghosts who lived or died with the quake linger, but such tasteful reclamation, superb plantings, lovely sea views. A place to sit and meditate on the brevity of life and the efforts of past locals who loved their town.

This is what makes a town memorable, a waterfront with lots of interesting features. Pretty day and night, summer & winter.

Lots of walk/cycle ways. Very inviting lovely to see families outside enjoying each others company.BarBQues under sunshades were used by travellers and locals for parties and lunches, great idea. There should be more around NZ cities.

This is a funny beach (if you can call it that). The main road runs along the beach, but there is a railway track between the road and beach. The place feels industrial, despite the row of Norfolk Island Pines. Definitely a waste of time.

The counclors of the past must be congratulated for their efforts starting this development. Well done to all the councils that have followed. Being at NBHS as a school kid from 1959 and enjoying the area then, it is great as a visitor to now be able walk along the parade and relax and enjoy.

A fabulous boardwalk and lots of great attractions. Mini Putt is fabulous, 2 to choose from and they are both excellent. Great park down one end and a chance to watch the talented youngsters at the skate park. Lots of seating to chill out on with an ice cream and time to reflect on life/throw pebbles into the sea/get back... More
