Stroll along Marine Parade and you find something for everyone's taste. Like various gardens, the sound shell, The National Aquarium, mini-golf, children's playground. a great variety of art works, skating ring. Close to the Ocean Spa complex you can rent bikes from Fish Bike and there are numerous destinations to go to. And the local I-site is located on the Marine Parade as well.
Lots of accommodation providers from the most affordable backpackers venue, a few B&B's, a great range or motels, serviced-apartments, a few hotels and luxury accommodation like The Dome.
And strolling in daytime brings you to this fantastic ice cream parlour 'Lick this...'.

The TripAdvisor #1 ranked Restaurant Indonesia, two Thai restaurants, fine dining options like Mint and Pacifica, steak restaurants and more. And on a nice day you have great views towards Cape Kidnappers where you can visit the gannets.
So when visiting Napier, the Marine Parade is a worthwhile destination
