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.

I took the long bus trip with Fullers to Cape Reinga. The trip is very lengthy but varied and interesting. The main attraction is Cape Reinga where the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea meet. It is fascinating because of its geography and it's great historical importance. It is,also a,special spot for the Maori. The trip allowed enough time to... More

Cape Reinga is a long way from most of civilized New Zealand, but well worth the drive. The scenery is unlike anywhere else you'll visit in NZ, and there are some stunning vistas in the hills above the cape. There are huge sand dunes, dry barren hills covered with scrubby vegetation (reminded me a little of Big Sur). The view... More

So we thought the Cape was really pretty and we missed the tour buses during our visit, so it wasn't too crowded. We ended up hiking the (LONG!) TeWahari track, which is not actually a fun hike at all...lots of sand dunes! BUT the secluded, STUNNING beaches were are favorite during our entire 3.5 week driving tour of North and... More

We stayed at Pukenui, so Cape Reinga was only a further 60 Km up the road. Had to visit because it it the furthest north west point of the North Island. Saw the lighthouse. Took a few photos. Saw where the Pacific Ocean meets the Tasman Sea. Then drove to Tapotupotu Bay. Better spot here for walking, sightseeing, lunch and... More

Mind blowing place, Tip of North Island - New Zealand. Has lot of visitor attractions. Must stay at least for 2-3 days at Bay of Island and then go for 1 day tour to Cape Reinga through Ninety Mile beach

The drive up to Te Rerenga-Wairua - Cape Reinga - is, at times, a winding, slow-go through rolling foothills, green pastureland and stunted, wind-blown forest. We arrived on a day where only a handful of cars occupied the first of two large parking lots (which led us to believe that this place might be very busy in the middle of... More

Long Drive to the Cape and lighthouse, yes lovely scenery but not better then further south. As no water, toilets are Bio so yes they were a bit smelly. Hundreds of us tourists and lots of Buses. As a "Brit" just like "John o Groat's" in Scotland, been there got the tee shirt, Very friendly Park Rangers.

Iconic tourist photo shot spot in NZ. Visited close to sunset. It was not crowded ad was great place to relax. You can actually see the Tasman Sea and Pacific ocean waves clashing. It was a bit too windy, so decided to leave early.
