Absolutely awesome. Quite exhausting to go back but well worth the effort. The views from the cliffs are just stunning and the beach is beautiful and we were completely alone there. Do that walk!

Stunning view! Really feels like you are at the top of the world. Should have done the walk leading to the lighthouse as well.

The cape reinga could do with some barriers along some of the cliff area and some of the walk ways to improve accessibility. There could be a small café and shop with views over the two oceans. The money generated from the visitors centre could help doc improve the conservation estate. This has been done by the Auckland Council at Murawai with the gannets.

The trip to the very northern part of New Zealand is a must do here in New Zealand. I would recommend doing it in your own car.

You can feel how extraordinary this sacred place is as soon as you are at the entrance of Cape Reinga. For a quick 45 minute walk to Te Werahi beach, it has to be my favourite short walk that allows you to have epic views - and the best part, seeing between 7 to 10 sperm whales playing where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean meet! Cape Reinga is a magical place!
