Great to wander along

Marine Parade is a great place to stroll along with your partner, kids, dog or even just yourself. Lots to see, things to do/try and also tasty eats along the way.

A lovely place to go and enjoy the views and sunshine. You can walk for hours or cycle to nearby towns and cafe's.

A great place to sightsee and eat fish, the ships were numerous and was relaxing just walking around and looking.

Must do, drive along Marine Parade and soak up the views. I wish we'd had time to walk it as there were many activities along the way we would've liked to spend time doing.

I brought my wife to Napier to see where I used to live and she loved walking along the parade and looking at the lights at night.

The guides are on volunteer basis though the Art Deco centre charges us for the tour. It's all for the maintenance of the structure. Napier is a beautiful and quiet town and we were happy to see how earth quake had lifted the place up and let it prospered.

Great walk along the beach, so close to town and yet it feels like such a quiet and refreshing place.

Lots of picnic tables... More
