Whats in Kaitaia

Haere Mai, Dobro Dosli, Welcome

Kaitaia is your gateway to paradise – it is the last main town on State Highway 1 before you reach the iconic Te Rerenga Wairua (or Cape Reinga) which is the northern tip of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Kaitaia is rich in culture and heritage combining stories of the first settlers, home to five iwi; Ngati Kuri, Te Rarawa, Te Aupouri, Ngati Kahu & Ngai Takoto; and our Dalmation settlers, each with their own stories intertwining history and special memories and places for each.

In just 20 minutes you can reach more than 20 different bays or beaches that are mostly unpopulated. Select the coast or bay/beach to visit based on which way the wind is blowing or simply your favourite fishing spot. How many will you visit?

The serene beauty, the peacefulness and our location will leave footprints in your soul. The Far North is the place to come to make memories of your own in our special places. Use the #kaitaiaparadise on Instagram to share your visit with others and get featured on our website.
