"Far north--Cape Reinga" New Zealand Things to Do Tip by rite_of_spring

  Cape Reinga lighthouse
by rite_of_spring

One should not give this a miss. The far north has a barren landscape with stunning rugged beauty. The feel like the end of the world is here. The meeting point of the Tasman sea and Pacific Ocean, and the colour of the sea is enigmatic (I saw purplish colour) in good weather. The northenmost point in NZ--the north cape can be seen from cape Reinga as it's not accessible by tourist.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
