“From Cape Reinga in New Zealand I have a long stretched view over the oceans and 90 mile beach. I get quiet and sit here for a while. A perfect spot to contemplate my life and restore my energy.”

Cape Reinga is the ultimate north of the northern island of New Zealand. When you are standing at the edge of the land your views will consists of nothing but ocean. It is here, right in front of you, where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. According the the Maori’s, the spirit of a deceased person leave New Zealand at this point and returns to Hawaiki, the ancestral homeland of the Maori.

Cape Reinga is a sacred site and the feeling to be standing here and see the currents meet each other will give you a special feeling and not wanting to leave.

On your way to Cape Reinga you can make multiple spots at 90 Mile Beach, the longest beach in New Zealand which is 88 kilometers long. At the border of 90 Mile beach you have several beautiful campsites. From here you can walk to the beach and walk for hours and hours…Until your head is empty and your heart is filled with peace.
