The journey up to there? Boring. The view and history at the top of the country? Brilliant. Well worth the travel time to visit the point of the underworld of the Maori people.

We arrived at dawn; we still got the chance to see millions stars on the sky, and enjoyed the sunrise at this peaceful morning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU-uC4UYejs (The meeting point of two oceans, the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean.)

We've been there around 7 am and it was stunning before all the tourist arrive. The view is fabulous and colors are gorgous. Enjoyed our trip despite a long drive to get there.

We were there during the sunset and awesome view.. Just see the ocean and hills and the beach with sand dunes.. Awesome ! And we back there the day after while the morning, beautiful too, it's crazy to see where the tasman sea and the Pacific ocean meet, but visit it early, after you have lot of people and bus... More

Great views here and definitely recommended to go during summer time. Looking out at where the lighthouse is at the top (North) of NZ you get a feeling of just how large the pacific is when you see nothing for ages. Camping is the only option if it is desired to stay close by which can be done at the... More

The road has been greatly improved since my last visit but I was really surprised to see how popular this destination is with both NZers and visitors. Both carparks were overflowing ( thankfully free of charge) and the foot traffic to the lighthouse was pretty much "nose-to-tail". The view was spectacular & well worth the effort. Next time I come,... More

Was great to say we made it to the northern-most part of New Zealand (however the actual northern-most part is further north-east accessible via a day walk). Was also cool to see the waves of the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean colliding about half a kilometre off-shore. However as far as an attraction I wouldn't highly rate, unless I imagine... More

Great day out being at the most northern point of NZ. We done a trip with fullers. 90 mile beach was cool as well ( similar to Fraser island). The cape is a short distance from the car park but maybe tiring for the not so fit. It was fairly busy when there so maybe do a DIY and go... More

We took a tour from Waitangi to the Cape. It is a day trip up and back to the tip of northern NZ but well worth it. Outstanding scenery but 90 mile beach is an event! It is like a long Daytona in the old days but better as there are no hoards of tourists. The beach is amazing. Stopped... More
