  The lighthouse
by allikat

The Cape Reinga lighthouse! You don't get to go inside the lighthouse, which, as most of them are nowadays, is fully automated, but you do get beautiful views. Built on this exposed headland back in the early 1940's it looks out over the worlds greatest ocean, the mighty Pacific and must as a consequence take a thorough battering from the weather at times!

I think lighthouses are special, largely because of the places you find them and the vast view they generally afford, and the one at Cape Reinga is no exception.

Address: Cape Reinga, Northland.
Directions: If you're not on a tour bus, follow the road North from Kaitaia (and remember that much of it is unsealed).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
