Lots to see here but will be better when the new skate precinct is finished.The older section with Pania statue and soundshell is iconic.

Having lived in Napier all our lives thought it was time to check out the parade. The walkway connecting to bay view and hastings is just scenically amazing!

A great walking track with plenty to see. Some places to get a snack and a coffee. Nice play areas for the kids as well.

What a gorgeous city! I couldn't believe how clean and friendly this place was. Marine Parade is somewhere that the people of Napier should be very proud of. It's a beautiful place with a great atmosphere, so clean, great entertainment for children, or a great place to just go for a walk/bike ride looking out over the Pacific Ocean.

Watch the waves crash along the beach while enjoying an easy walk along the bay. Benches and viewing stops along the way, many people grab coffee or lunch to go and sit along the walkway to enjoy the spectacular sights.

It's the perfect stretch of coast for anyone, no matter what age you are. The paths are flat and interesting and the scenery is breathtaking. There are plenty of resting spots, eating places and playgrounds to enjoy. The sculptures, sunken gardens and Art Deco features make it a destination to visit while in Napier.

Marine Parade is a great place to get some fresh air and exercise while in Napier. Lovely wide paths to walk, run or cycle on with the most awesome views of the ocean. Highly recommended

This walkway and park extends for several kilometres along the shore in Napier, it is busy with locals all during the day out walking, running, biking and playing in the parks. On a sunny day it is nice way to enjoy the ocean breeze.

Although there was work in progress & it was the Napier marathon time, we really enjoyed our walk along Marine Parade. The massive Pier was awesome to be able to watch the waves crash under us, & the ssshhhhh noise of the shingles as the waves peeled back... stunning 😊. Will be back again 👍
