Cape Kidnappers Golf Course is an 18-hole course near Te Awanga, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. It takes its name from the nearby headland of Cape Kidnappers. It was designed by Tom Doak in 2004 and was funded by American developer Julian Robertson.
If you plan on walking to Cape Kidnappers , you will find the trailhead in Clifton, which is a small settlement 18 kilometers east of Hastings and 21 kilometers south from Napier, so it should take you less than thirty minutes to reach the starting point, in case you spend the night in one of those cities.
Cape Kidnappers /Te Kauwae-a-Māui is an extraordinary sandstone headland to the east of Hastings in Hawke’s Bay. It was named by Captain Cook after an attempt by local Māori to abduct one of his crew. The cape is home to the largest and most accessible gannet colony in the world.
– There is only one road to get there. You have to go along the beach. – The walk doesn’t stop to the first Gannets settlement you see. If you go further, there is a bigger one and then there is a 30 minutes hike to get on top of the hill to have an amazing view.
Napier is the place that gets instantly recognised for its historic architecture, but its twin city, Hastings, is just as worthy of a visit .
Napier is a popular tourist city, with a unique concentration of 1930s Art Deco architecture, built after much of the city was razed in the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake. It also has one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the country, a statue on Marine Parade called Pania of the Reef.
