Great beauty.

Stunning views from the area of the lighthouse. The walk to it is reasonably taxing but well worth it. Rocks, water - what more could you ask for?

We are travelling our own car and we were glad to be leaving here when the bus tours arrived! Beautiful views and a nice walk. The light house itself is a little underwhelming (it's the smallest I've seen!) but it's a box to tick off on the NZ bucket list. We were here mid-morning and it was getting busy.

The last few kilometers drive are spectacular, but the scenery when you get there just blows your mind. The climb up the hill to see the two oceans meeting is well worth the effort

I could spend hours there. Its a mystic place, almost the end of the north island when the oceans find each others. You must take a bottle of water with you, the water that's availble there is salty.

When approaching Cape Reinga – the utterly remote northernmost point of New Zealand – one begins to realize just how minute and powerless they are in comparison with the timeless forces of nature.

If you're on State Highway One going north in Northlands keep going until you reach Cape Reinga. This has got to be one of the most beautiful and spiritual places on earth. Arrive as early as the speed limit allows and soak up the peaceful tranquility. Beautifully keep, wonderfully peaceful and free. Sometimes life is good.

Went back to Cape Reinga two days ago for the second time. It was as wonderful as I remembered, and even better. The place is simply magic, full of energy, with the Pacific Ocean quietly accepting the turbolent, strong energy of the colliding Tasman Sea. It is astonishingly beautiful, the colours bright, the lanscape wide. And the 110 kms from... More

This was a trip well worth the money. Robin was our driver, very clear, very knowledgable a quite witty. It was a very long day but enjoyed every moment. The fish and chip lunch was fairly early as this is tied in with the tide timetable to allow the coch to drive on 90mile beach. It was fun watching the... More

This was 4hrs very well spent. We visited Cape Reinga at the end of a 5 week trip around NZ, and after debating whether to come up from the bay of islands or stay sun bathing for an extra day, we were incredibly glad we did. The drive towards the Cape is beautiful and it helped that it was a... More
