Any trip to New Zealand's beautiful North Island wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Hawkes Bay region. Located on the east coast (about half way down, a couple of hours drive further down the coast from Gisborne), the Hawke's Bay is where all of life's little luxuries come to meet.
Food and wine are plentiful and varied here, along with breath-taking vistas, remodelled architectural landscapes and the sort of lush landscapes and pristine beaches that New Zealand is famous for.
The Hawkes Bay is noted the world over for its exquisite selection of locally crafted wines. Owing to its warm, dry climate the region is home to a number of award winning wineries. The oldest of these (not only within the Hawkes Bay, but in New Zealand!) is Mission Estate Wineries, which is located in Napier, the largest city in the region. If you head south from Napier, inland from the coast a little, you'll arrive in Hastings, where you will definitely want to check out Trinity Hill winery; their wide selection of wines has something for everybody. Just south-east of Hastings is Havelock North, which hosts a number of the nation's top wineries, including Craggy Range, Black Barn Vineyard, and Te Mata Estate, all of which are more than worth a visit.
In order to get the most out of your stay you will need comfortable, centrally located accommodation that allows you to easily explore everything the Hawke's Bay has to offer. Fortunately there is a Kiwi Holiday Park in the heart of Napier that is the perfect place for travellers to the region to call home.
Bay View Snapper Holiday Park
Located just North along the coastline from central Napier, Bay View is an area that looks exactly as it sounds. Picturesque ocean views and convenient access to swimming or fishing are the order of the day. Relaxation is paramount here, with long expansive stretches of unspoilt beaches to enjoy, and four star motel accommodation to rest your head in at night. If you are travelling on a budget you can still immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring surroundings for next to nothing by booking a powered site or camping spot.
On-site facilities include an internet kiosk and readily available Wi-Fi for you to keep in touch with family and friends, a BBQ area, adventure playground and bicycle hire. If you wish to visit the region's impressive array of wineries you can book tours which will allow you to take in the highlights, with a few glasses along the way!
