Bluff Hill Lookout, Napier
(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.

  • Not such a clear day but never the less our friends from overseas just loved it and they couldn't get over how far you could see and how large our port was. 
  • Hike a few minutes by car. There is parking. We walked past the old prison. On a hot day and not prepared will not be easy. Part of the route through the streets, part of "the Park" where you can take a break. There is a picnic area, benches, closets, but mostly at the cargo terminal.
