The best view of central Napier is from Clyde Road. This is a very small and residential street. I would not recommend driving up to this part of Bluff Hill. It’s a short but steep walk up the hill from the city. From here we get a fantastic view of some of the iconic Art Deco architecture of Napier. In the foreground is The Country Hotel on Browning Street. A couple of blocks back is The Dome on the corner of Emerson Street and Marine Parade. This spot also shows how flat the city is. Perfect for walking or cycling along the waterfront. It also gives a lovely view south out into the Hawke Bay. This was taken on a clear evening so we can see all the way to Cape Kidnappers peninsula, about 15 kilometres south.
