What a time to be alive! After a fairly long drive from Paihia (about 3 hours) we arrived at Cape Reinga, on a beautiful sunny day. The views were spectacular, and it was very cool to see where the Tasman and the Pacific meet at...More

Despite leaving Paihia at 7.15am and returning at 5.40pm I highly recommend this tour. We booked with Explore and weren't disappointed. The driver was informative. As we travelled along the 90 mile beach he described the many varying conditions that can be encountered. We left...More

Cape Reinga should be on every Kiwi bucket list and although it is a long drive to reach don't let that put you off. Take your time and don't rush this trip. If travelling up from Auckland definitely get off SH1 at Pakaraka and take...More

We visited the cape as part of a group tour. The plant life looks a lot different to the rest of the north island. The views around the peninsula are amazing and its quite a sight to see the Pacific meeting the Tasman sea. Highly...More

If you look at a map of North Island, you might be interested in getting to the tip of New Zealand. I was quite disturbed as the gas lamp turned even before arriving our desination. Luckily we managed and the view was beyond imagination.

Great place to watch the 2 oceans meet. You can see the waves coming from east and west and crashing into each other. Well paved path to the lighthouse suitable for strollers etc. The view from carpark # 2 over to the peninsula is worth...More
