What to See and Do in the

Far North

The northern most tip of New Zealand features the famous 90 Mile Beach, the legendary Cape Reinga - where the Pacific Ocean meets the Tasman Sea and is home to a giant swamp of Kauri trees thousands of years old.

The whole region is lined with beautiful unspoiled white sandy beaches perfect to swim, snorkel and gather shellfish. Being so unspoilt, the Far North has some of the best fishing and diving waters in the world.

Guided tours depart from Paihia (Bay of Islands) and Kaitaia in the Far North daily and travel the popular 90 Mile Beach as well as the road north bringing the fascinating gumdigging, maori and early European history to life. Beach activities range from surfcasting and swimming to bodyboarding down the sand dunes.
