Along the way, stop to explore the ancient Puketi Kauri Forest, visit the famous Ninety Mile Beach, or sand-board down the massive dunes (optional). On arrival at Cape Reinga, walk out along the coastal cliffs to the Cape Reinga lighthouse and hear about the area's Maori legends as you gaze out across the meeting point of the Tasman and Pacific Oceans.
