At the top of the North Island of New Zealand is Cape Reinga. It is home to where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean join and is truly a beautiful sight to see the different colored bodies of water meet.
After a long winding drive up to the tip of NZ, the lighthouse is just a short scenic walk away. Once at the lighthouse you can see the ocean and the coast of NZ for miles.
I went to Cape Reinga with some fellow backpackers and we had a great trip meeting new people.
