The iconic East Cape Lighthouse sits on the easternmost point of New Zealand and is absolute magic at sunrise.

What feels like the end of the earth will be worth the drive. Perched above Otiki Hill in Te Araroa, the iconic East Cape Lighthouse sits on the easternmost point of New Zealand and is absolute magic at sunrise. From Te Araroa, the 22km coastal drive to this historic lighthouse is not meant to be rushed so make sure you enjoy the entire journey including the 700 steps to get to the lighthouse.
Surrounded by pristine coastline and out of this world views, you may even consider immortalising this magic moment by printing out a photo or two to frame.
