At the very northern tip of New Zealand’s north island you’ll find Cape Reinga. While standing on the headland looking out into the ocean you feel like you’re standing on the top of the world. There is much to see in the area including giant sand dunes, almost deserted beaches and much more.
The views from Cape Reinga are awesome, unfortunately the weather was a bit cloudy when I took these shots but I think they make it look even more awesome.
You can find more photos and videos of New Zealand’s North Island over on my blog here.
This is a great drive from Auckland but give yourself plenty of time, don’t let the gas run low in your car and be aware of how isolated some of these areas can be, especially in an emergency.
