This is a must if visiting Napier. Short drive up a steep skinny windy road & then at the top is the most amazing view, especially of the wharf. Take your lunch & Watch the ships being loaded etc.

A short narrow drive up from Napier but view worth it. We were fascinated by the activities in the port area below. Also great view of pebble beach. Nice garden area with picnic table for warmer days.

It was nice and sunny when we visited Bluff Hill and the views are spectacular. The road there is narrow with a few corners (as you would expect). Worth the time and effort.

An interesting drive to get to the lookout, the houses just seem to cling to edge of the cliff in parts. The view is worth the effort, you can see forever. The port below has wharves stacked high with sustainable harvested tree trunks. It's quite...More
