We enjoyed the excellent views from the Bluff Hill lookout. Toilets , parking all very good . Just be careful with small kids as the fence by the Bluff is relatively liw and the drop very steep.

Walking along Breakwater Road we turned into Horsby Road and followed it up to Sturms Gully Reserve and the start of the pathway to the Bluff Hill Lookout. After a short steep five minute hike up stairs and compacted dirt path we have arrived at the top of the bluff with fabulous views down over the busy port, out to sea and along a portion of the nearby coastline. Most visitors we saw on the morning of our visit drove up to the bluff, there was plenty of parking. Note: picnic and toilet facilities were available. Finding the correct path to take us down to the CBD was not easy so we just followed the road until we saw signage for walkers down Priestly Terrace via a shady pedestrian only path to Coote Road, roughly fifteen minutes.

We came here on a fine winter day. The view of the ocean and the bay was stunning. The working port is interesting to see too - there’s even an information board explaining the port in details. The lookout is not hard to reach except for the narrow winding road. Recommend for all visitors to Napier.
