Long windy drive, but destination worth it. Takes longer to drive than you would think. Allow at least 2 hours each way. And do the walks, well signposted and marked. If not a walker, try to the lighthouse. Well worth the walk.

Visited the Cape after a day on 90 mile beach. After reading what the place means in Maori culture - I knew going in that this place had some heavy spiritual ties to it. The visitor entrance and pathways are well kept and serene. All along the route there are placards where you can learn more about the lighthouse and... More

The drive from even Bay of Islands is long, with not many available stops along the way, but it's worth a visit if you have time! To watch the waves criss-cross and collide as the Pacific Ocean meets the Tasman see is a really neat experience. The light house is beautiful and the signposts make for a great photo-op, if...

pick up just next to the B/B, lunch was not enough food and not so good But timing every where perfect. Also the detour to see the Kauri forest, just off our B/B, a must for nature lovers

This place is breathtakingly beautiful, take note though the walk down to light house means a hike back up to the top, you still get a good view from the top without going all the way down..go on a clear day you see alot more to the Three kings Island, the meeting of the ocean and the sea take the...

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.'
