Having travelled from the Bay of Islands to Cape Reinga the long scenic drive was well worth it when the spectacular nature of the Cape's location was revealed after walking down to the lighthouse. The natural phenomenon of the meeting of the two seas - Tasman and Pacific - was fascinating and I could have spent hours watching the confluence... More

A place where the ocean meets the sea is a view to behold. You can actually see the border between the two most of the time. There are nice facilities and park8ng lot there. Also, that's where Te Araroa trail begins. Hitchhiking there up Highway 1, however, was a little slow.

This was our second trip here in just over 2 years. The first time we came, it was gloriously sunny and clear and the views were stunning, but because of my planning, we had very little time to enjoy it. This trip in November 2014 was foggy with brief glimpses of beautiful blue sky and the water below. We spent... More

Now when you in NZ North Island don's miss visiting this place it is worth the journey. A very spiritual place in the Maori culture but also of stunning beauty and the fact that the two oceans(Pacific and Tasman) meet here is special. The information along the track to the light house informs you well of the spiritual meaning of... More

So worth a drive or bus tour to this beautiful area. Amazing scenery and views, great history,very informative plaques along the pathway. There's some lovely walks off of the main pathway. Make sure you take water etc as there isn't a shop or kiosk there.'

Have been here before but not recently. How it has changed, for the better. Awesome attraction, the venue speaks for itself. The plaques full of interesting information of history etc ,are dotted around the lovely leisurely walk to the amighty lighthouse and the view of the tasman sea and pacific ocean crashinf their mighty heads together. A very spirtual place... More

Great place to take a leisurely stroll or do a more serious walk. Beautiful views all around and interesting Maori history. Well set up with facilities and drinking fountain. It takes a while to drive up there but it is well worth the experience. Come prepared for food etc as there is nothing nearby. Great day out.

Woke up early to get to Cape Reinga early. Sure glad I did. As I was arriving there was a couple leaving. It was peaceful to see/take pics with no tourist around. It is a long drive from Auckland and would be a long day trip. If heading north of Auckland put this on your list. Arrive early to enjoy... More

Flew on Salt air to cape reinga where they had a van waiting that took us to the lighthouse and then to a beach where we had morning tea. After went to the sand dunes and rode down them. Then back to flight back over the picturese beaches. Fabulous half day tour.

You need good weather to fully appreciate this place which has quite a spiritual feeling. There is no food or drink available so be prepared.
