Travel Guide
The Veronica Sun Bay of Napier

Napier has its own airport, which was voted New Zealand Regional Airport of the Year in 2013. Low cost airline Jetstar is now operating out of Napier Airport, in competition to the national carrier, Air New Zealand.  This makes flying into Napier Airport to pick up your hire car an attractive option, with cheaper and more frequent flights now available. 

Napier is a popular tourist city due to a unique concentration of 1930s' art deco architecture. It also has one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the country, a statue on  Marine Parade called Pania of the Reef. You'll find some of the best wine producers in New Zealand in the areas surrounding Napier and Hastings.

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.
