We enjoyed listening to the sound of the wind through the gate very huanting on the way in. We also got to see the light house working a real bonus and it was very quiet up the top. Great to see the top of New Zealand

Wheelchair access - YES. No steps at all. Although some parts of the winding wheelchair-friendly path are sufficiently steep to require good brakes. The platform upon which the lighthouse is built, has a waist height wall, making it safe for children and errant wheelchairs. No entry fees. The 104km drive from Awanui is almost worth making just to marvel at... More

Cape Reinga The meeting point of the Tasman Sea and the Pacific ocean. The light house at Cape Reinga was built in 1941. We traveled the 100km from from the nearest town in our camper van, we then went to Ninety Mile Beach and had a picnic lunch.

This is an easy day-trip drive from Paihia to the cape, good road but quite winding in some parts, some one-way bridges make it a bit more interesting. As you near the cape you start seeing beautiful vistas of the beaches and sand dunes way below. There is pay parking on the top and a lengthy but quite easy walk... More

We (my wife, Canadian cousin and his wife) booked "Fullers Great Sights" bus tour to 90 mile beach and Cape Reinga in May 2016 with a little apprehension as my wife and I had previously done this trip in 2014 (with driver "Hughie") and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would 2016 live up to expectations?? Absolutely!!!! A foggy start in Pahia soon... More

We decided to day a day trip to the Cape from Paihia & left just after 8am. The drive took around 3 hours with a stop for coffee included at the junction of SH10 & SH1. The road is fine and not an onerous drive, sealed all the way, but the 1 car only bridges took a little getting used... More

It is a long drive to Cape Reinga through many winding roads from Paihia. There is lots to see on the way up there, many beautiful coastal towns to drop in on, so make sure you allow time for that also. Cape Reinga is stunning. The area is very well set up for the tourists with board walks and lots... More
