Bluff Hill is a very pituresque spot on top of a mound overlooking Napier and pretty much the rest of southern Hawkes Bay, as well as the busy docking bay (pictured).
Id say its a good way to kill half hour, and you can take a few photos from the top, or simply chill out. We took some snacks up there and gazed out into the Pacific Ocean...
Located off Marine Parade. This peaceful calm garden is furnished with native greenery and the waterfall cascading down the cliff is a serene soundtrack accompanying the walk over the small bridge and around the lake.
The 6 sisters
The Six Sisters is the name given to a group of 6 brightly coloured wooden 2 storey buildings on Marine Parade.
Each one is something different - one is a gift/art gallery/boutique, another is a business, a couple are restaurants, and one seems to be a private house.
Art Deco city
Napier is a bright Art Deco city on the east of the north island. its a nice place to walk around and stroll along by the promenade by the beach. The lookout at Bluff Hill is awesome, the view of Hawkes Bay is one of the best view points in New Zealand.
