we were staying in Paihia and organised a day drip through Great Sights with the eventual destination being the Cape 300km away (so its a full day) but this included Ninety mile beach, Dune Boarding at the Te Paki Stream and a decent lunch. The Cape has great views with a walk down to the lighthouse where you can see... More

Spent the day traveling up to Cape Reinga. Such a beautiful view and neat to see the two bodies of water converge with each other. A definite must see when on the North Island.

On the fine day that we visited we could see the Three Kings and the meeting of the oceans was obvious

The Cape Reinga drive up is picturesque the whole way with little traffic. When you reach the light house car parks there is quite a steep walk however it is a beautifully pathed walk with stop areas that appear to be maintained and well manicured gardens. The feeling here is like a spiritual one. Must see to experience the emotion... More

One of those places that will take your breath away, the views from the walk to the lighthouse (if you're not doing any of the other multitude of hikes available) is incredible. Two oceans clashing is definitely some thing to be seen. The main walk (to the lighthouse and back) can be done in about an hour. Amenities at the... More

Cape Reinga never fails. To see two great oceans come together as one is worth the drive. A photographer's dream. It is amazing whether sunny or rainy. If you love exercise it is a great walk to the light house. My son loved it.

Let's face it - it takes hours to get there and it's a long way from anywhere; there are no shops, restaurants etc on route. However the views of the far north are spectacular and if you miss the chance to go up to Cape Reinga, you've REALLY missed out! There is a lot of parking available but expect it... More

This destination is just so worth the driving effort. It looks a distance, but showcases a wild unspoilt coast and some wonderful Maori culture. If you can freedom camp, just down the way is a beautiful beach cove where waking in the morning is far more therapeutic than any massage! We forewent Wellington and surrounds to do this trip, and...

The most northern point in New Zealand and well worth the drive. It is one of the most amazing sites I have ever visited. The views are breathtaking. The path is extremely accessible and well kept. It is a long drive north but I highly recommend it!!!

The drive alone is an experience. But the views - OH the views. Everywhere you look is a pretty picture. The cliffs, the vistas, the ocean, the winding roads. Incredible. When you get to the top, have lunch in the car or camper, or wait until you get an appetite after your walk. (no food is permitted on the trail).... More
