“Pebbles beach!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Too used to walk by a beach with sands? Now walk by Marine parade as the beach is full with pebbles! But don't swim here, the current is strong. The view at Marine Parade is just beautiful. Those nature lovers will definitely find tranquility here. If you love star gazing, this is one of the best place I would recommend.

“Family Entertainment”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a great area for families the kiddies play ground has extended and is suitable for children of all ages. There is an amazing bike track complete with traffic lights and roundabout excellent for bikes and scooters. Also they have sun shades along the walkway with free b b q's available for the public. A very enjoyable way to spend a day in the sun

“Fantastic Napier”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Cycling along Marine Parade every morning was a fantastic experience. there are plenty of seats to stop and watch the world go by. The gardens are very well kept. Everyone is so helpful and
friendly. The weather was fantastic when I was there, February, and 25c most days. The town itself is great to look at, the architecture and the interesting Art Deco shops. I'm going there again this year, my 3rd visit.
