Things To Do
The Hawke's Bay really heats up in the spring and summer months with many local wineries and venues hosting a range of activities including many top musical talents from around the world.
Hawke's Bay Farmers' Market:
There's nothing fresher or finer than a barrow load of food from The Hawke's Bay Farmers' Markets! Shop for a wide range of fresh vegetables, fruit, meat, bread, eggs, pickles and preserves straight from the producer.
Hot freshly roasted coffee and a choice of breakfast fare feed the body while the senses take in the live music, the smells of cooking and the produce so fresh it looks straight back at you. Meet the grower, producer or maker and talk with them about their products. See touch, smell and taste the goods, then buy knowing that they are fresh from the source. A visit to Hawke's Bay is completed by a shopping spree at one.
Ahuriri is a charming waterfront village in Napier’s vibrant entertainment quarter – a short 5 minute drive from the Napier CBD, and 10 minutes from the airport.
The area is steeped in history, being one of the earliest settled areas of Napier. Today, Ahuriri offers everything from a swimming beach and an extensive seaside boardwalk to many waterfront cafes and bars, art galleries and boutique stores.
