A great place to stroll with your family while enjoying the gentle sun kissing your face. You'll enjoy an afternoon there with lazy stroll and a good book to relax yourself when you're tired walking.

Just walk to the lovely fountain and then take a leisurely walk along the promenade, careful of the bikers, and enjoy the sea and the lovely beach. Just a lovely walk.

We found Marine Parade a wonderful area for our bike rides. The cycle trails all around are fabulous. Good on Napier for making the area so cycle friendly!

This whole area along Marine Parade is just lovely, especially on a sunny day when the azure sea is glowing in the back ground. As it only was 'created' after the earthquake in the 30s it is very flat and so suitable for strollers, wheelchairs, anyone. There are cafes, restaurants, swimming pools, playgrounds, even an aquarium. You could spend some... More
