Lovely relaxing walk

We often take a walk along the parade. Good to get in some exercise and enjoy the scenery and monuments.

The Marine Parade is a great place to visit. Walking along the walkways, cycle the bike parks from Ahuriri right through Napier beach fronts and there are now shaded area's with barbeque points scattered along the Parade.

After a long drive from Rotorua we needed to stretch our legs and the Marine Parade was the perfect area to get some exercise. It goes for a long way and we only walked for 2 miles but it is an easy walk next to the water. There are attractions along the way to keep your interest including gardens and... More

We spent several night parked in our RV in a car park on the Marine Parade. It's a lovely spot right next to the beach. A walk or cycle way extends for many KM along the coast with sea views all the way. There is a marine attraction with many different fish on display, a really good ice cream parlor,... More

This boulevard would be really nice for a stroll. Also, they are building more kid-friendly attractions.

There are great views of gardens, the shops, the water and more. They continue to make the Marine Parade better with further development continuing without disrupting the feel of the place

A lovely walk along the sea front with a view of both the ocean and the Art Deco buildings as you walk.

One can see a great deal of thought and expense has gone into producing Marine Parade. It's clean, lots to see including some of Napiers beautiful Art Deco Buildings. Fountains, a skate Park, BBQ areas and of course the Ocean.
