Napier, New Zealand Overview

In 1931 a disastrous earthquake destroyed the city. The earthquake heaved 40 square kilometres of water covered land above sea level. Rebuilding began, resulting in Napier becoming the art deco capital. With Napier being a coastal town there are a wide variety of water sports, fishing trips, pleasure cruises and also night cruises which are very popular. Other activities include windsurfing, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing and parasailing - all available on the waterfront.

Another beautiful spot, highly recommend the three sisters coffee house on the main strip if you need a good coffee. Also look out for the mobile fresh doughnut van, absolutely delicious.

Beautiful Napier, must do a tour and take in Te Mata Peak, Strawberry Farm, best ice-creams ever! TRy and find a small group tour, we got stuck on a large coach, the smaller intimate groups are better. Better still book a local well in advance and they will personalise the tour to suit you
