napier is one of the prettiest cities I have ever been to. The art deco buildings are absolutely gorgeous and the marine parade is beautifully landscaped and looked after.

Great walking track along the beach, lodes of gardens and pavilions etc to view. There is a cycle path that goes for miles right along the waterfront.

Great walk along the extensive paths with the sea to one side and views to Cape Kidnappers. Lots to see and do including Ocean Spa pools, putt putt golf, Tourist Centre, amazing gardens to wander through and close proximity to the main shopping area. Easy parking.

Just across the road from prime hotels a beautiful beach front with interesting walk ways. Well lilt for a night walk and given Napier's climate made for a peaceful walk even on a July night.

Many other cities and towns would do well to provide the facilities at such reasonable cost to visitors. Free parking showers available for a dollar. Great family entertainment and easy safe access to the beach and gardens. Beautiful smooth pathways to walk beside the sea

The buildings and architecture are lovingly restored in Art Deco style and include play areas and gardens which are delightful. Look out for the decorated public toilets!

The marine parade in Napier has been recently restored with grass, native plants, shaded areas, artwork, a great cycle path, sunken gardens, playgrounds and other activities for children, walkways, barbeque areas etc - it looks great and is very inviting. You can cycle from Napier all the way to other nearby beaches or the port etc or you can walk... More

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.
