Day 1; Cape Reinga – Southern Te Werahi Beach

1 Hour.

Set off at 10 pm from Cape Reinga lighthouse after we couldn’t find accomodation in Kaitaia. Farewelled dad and set off down to Te Werahi Beach. Set up camp at the southern end, found a good site in the dunes beside Te Werahi stream. Good water source.
Stunner beach all to ourselves 🙂
