Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Formerly the site of an artillery battery, Bluff Hill Lookout offers a sweeping vantage point surveying the area's coastal scenery. Head uphill via a relatively easy hike, or go by car and take advantage of the parking area at the summit. Upon reaching the top you'll be rewarded with a panorama over Hawke's Bay, the surrounding hills, and the city's working port--one of the country's busiest. You can even sit and enjoy the view from one of the benches in the lookout's small brick shelter.

  • The Bluff Hill Lookout is a great way to end your visit around Napier. We recommend it to all the Napier fans 
  • The lookout allows to see that the port and not the city centre which would have been even more impressive. However, the view is beautiful. On the other hand, be careful to go there because the road is extremely steep and narrow.
