Shopping in Hawke's Bay can be done either as a marathon or a sprint - and with a number of shopping precincts to explore.
Central Napier's compact grid of inner city streets means there is a walk-able range of boutique stores alongside larger national chains, and plenty of cafes in between. Explore the streets either side of the railway lines within the Hastings CBD to find that special something. Havelock North is known for its village atmosphere and boutique shopping, with an exciting array of specialty food, wine and books stores as well. Discover the boutique stores, treasure troves and eclectic mix of art, fashion and antiques in the coastal settlements of Ahuriri, Te Awanga and Haumoana.
