    The problem with the Nautilus is not the room or the motel itself it is the really busy road that it sits on. We were given their quietest road but that meant the side two rooms from the front so still noisy. There is a port on the edge of Napier and all the large lorries from port drive along the front of Napier and that is where a lot of the hotels are positioned (there is a nice promenade).

    Art Deco Napier

    This morning we did an Art Deco walking tour. The tour started at the colonnade on Marine Parade. This waterfront reserve area is all built on land that was thrust up by the 1931 earthquake. Before the earthquake the tide came right up to the sea wall at the edge of Marine Parade. The earthquake lifted the seabed two metres above sea level right …

    A travel blog entry by samber51 on Feb 01, 2015

    Von Wellington machen wir uns direkt, wenn auch ein wenig verkatert, auf den Weg nach Napier. (Da soll mal einer behaupten ich sei nicht ehrlich!!) Die Südwestküste der Nordinsel gibt ausser Klippen nicht viel her und deshalb fahren wir so ziemlich den ganzen Tag einfach weiter nach Norden. In Napier angelangt nehmen wir uns das erste Mal auf …

    After getting advice from Tourist Information we booked ourselves on the Gannet Colony tour. This was the most expensive option but the other two options were not open to us. If the tide is right you can walk along the beach, or you can go in a trailer pulled by a tractor again along the beach. However you guessed it, the tides were wrong. We went …

    Bubbly Breakfast by the Beach

    Setting off 8.10 all in gear. The town was really quiet when we arrived and all managed to see so many cars, buildings and sights without the crowds. We headed for the beach side marquee where the tables were set out with beautiful centre pieces that Auntie Doris would love. Bubbly to drink full cooked breakfast NZ style croissants and muesli style treat .... Ideal for recipe number 7. Groups of people sitting eating smiling ...

    An earthquake destroyed most of downtown Napier in 1931 and the whole town was rebuilt in the following two years in Art Deco style which was the current fashion. We enjoyed a day and half in the Hawkes Bay area, which includes Napier, the last afternoon and evening it ...
