“Great view of Hawke's Bay”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

If in Napier, you need to visit Bluff Hill to get a perspective on the Hawke's Bay area, and the Port. It offers a beautiful site for photos on a sunny day.

“Fantastic view”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

A must to visit when in Napier, but don't try to walk up to the lookout. Go by car - a lot easier. Great view of the port and out to Cape Kidnappers. Could be a little windy but well worth the effort. High recommended.

“Bluff outlook”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Lovely houses are located in this steep area overlooking the harbour of Napier - you can walk or drive up the roads (carefully and slowly) and admire the many houses and lovely gardens along the way. Once at the top you can park and go for a walk to a look out point with explanations, look at the activity at the port and of course look out over the sea. A worthwhile place to visit.

“Bluff Hill Lookout”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Rather a hairy drive to get to the lookout but once there the view is magnificent over the bay and beyond. One looks directly down on Napier Port and is very worthwhile to watch a cruise ship arrive or depart.
