Marine Parade

Napier, New Zealand

Thanks to ongoing redevelopment, this historic pine-tree-lined waterfront promenade has been polished into fine form. Visitors can walk or bike its designated paths to discover an array of sights and attractions, such as Art Deco buildings and fountains, the Sunken Gardens, the National Aquarium of New Zealand, a band shell, miniature golf, picnic areas, benches, ice cream shops and sculptures—all bathed in sunlight and backed by the beauty of the ocean.
