Cape Reinga is located over 100 km north of the nearest small town of Kaitaia.
The name of the cape comes from the Māori word ‘Reinga’, meaning the ‘Underworld’ meaning the leaping-off place of spirits.
Cape Reinga is generally considered the separation marker between the Tasman Sea to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east. From the lighthouse it is possible to watch the tidal race, as the two seas clash .
