East Cape
The easternmost point on mainland New Zealand, East Cape is located just past where the Bay of Plenty joins the vast Pacific Ocean. The spot is marked by a white lighthouse, poised 154 meters (505 feet) above the sea. This is a ruggedly beautiful and sparsely populated region, with stunning coastal scenery wrapped around a towering spine of wild and uninhabited mountains. A large percentage of the residents are Maori, who prefer Eastland’s traditional way of life and slower pace.
