Marine Parade, Napier

4.6
Home to an array of historical buildings, memorials, and other places to visit, Marine Parade stands as an icon of the city. Wander down this popular promenade, a favorite of rollerbladers, and admire its panoply of Art Deco structures, the national aquarium, and all sorts of activity centers. Look for the arch dedicated to the city's revival after a devastating earthquake in 1931, and don't miss the beloved seafront statue of Pania, a mythological Maori figure. After your exploring, you can grab a snack or kick back with a drink at one of the many waterfront cafes and eateries. Put Marine Parade into our Napier tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
