Take a Photo of Pania
Located on the foreshore of Napier is the statue of Pania of the Reef, one of the most photographed attractions in New Zealand. The statue is dedicated to a Maori legend of forbidden love. Pania lived in the reef off the coast of Napier. By day she would frolic in the sea and at night would head into the river to rest. One night while resting alongside the river she spotted the handsome son of a Maori chief and they fell in love. Although they married, Pania could only spend nights with her lover. During the day, her family in the sea would call for her to return. In a desperate attempt to keep Pania by his side, the chief's son tried to trap her into remaining on land. Pania fled to the reef, never to see her husband again.
