Cape Reinga

Cape Reinga is located at the northern-most point of the North Island of New Zealand and is currently on the tentative list of UNESCO waiting to receive World heritage status. According to Maori oral history it is here at the northern most point of the cape where the pohutukawa tree stands that Maori spirits leap into the ocean to return to their ancestral homeland of Hawaiki.

The lighthouse viewing point allows travellers to discover the tidal race where the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean meet and the colliding currents create unsettled waters. Travellers are also able to visit the very popular Ninety Mile Beach, which is best known for its beautiful sunsets and great surfing conditions.
