  View over Hawkes Bay from Bluff Hill Lookout
by balhannah

This hilltop was originally occupied by the Army during World War 2. Its a great vantage point for views over Hawkes Bay, from Mahia Peninsula to Cape Kidnappers. Captain Cook, in 1769, sailed along the coast and noted this "Bluff Head" and he also named quite a few places along the coast. Be careful driving up this narrow, windy road to the lookout, as the locals speed up and down it, cutting corners, very dangerous.

Address: Entry via lighthouse road
