From fantastic beach experiences, to sublime views, adventure and cultural experiences, Napier on New Zealand's North Island is a great holiday destination for adventurous and romantic travellers. Located close to Napier, Te Mata Peak is one of the region's most visited attractions for its beautiful views: Hawkes Bay surrounds you and the emotions conjured by the scenery are incredible. A great choice for a beach tour and barbeque is the Cape Kidnappers tour which takes you on a beach walk and a visit to The Farm Restaurant for some local cuisine. A day visit to the Art Deco centre is a great way to learn more about Napier's heritage. Here you can learn about the earthquake that nearly destroyed the region in 1931. Visitors can enjoy sunrise and sunset on Marine Parade which is a great view and walking site that the whole family can enjoy.
The National Aquarium is a great choice for those who love the marine world and for families with kids, while Par 2 Mini Golf is another idea for a day trip. Laserforce games are also a popular activity for families and teens. The Faraday Centre is an excellent choice for a museum trip featuring engines and scientific exhibits. Of course the beach is omnipresent in the city and a popular space for rest and relaxation.
