Between Napier and Gisborne lies a scenic peninsula named Mahia Peninsula.
Extending 21.7 km1 (3.5 miles)long and 11.3 km (7 miles) wide it rises as high as 397 metres (1,302 feet) above sea level. Once an island, a sand bar connected it to the rest of the North Island.
Mahia is known for its surf and fishing and makes a good day trip from Napier, Hastings, or Wairoa. There are also a number of nice walks here with photo opportunites.
