East Cape is the easternmost point, as well as a peninsula in New Zealand . It is located in the middle of the North Island, about 140 km from Whakatane . At the end of East Cape stands a hill with a lighthouse and an earth way leading to it. As a reward for climbing the 600 steps of the lighthouse, we can enjoy a wonderful view of a green valley and the opposite East Island. A large number of the sacred pohutukawa trees grow on East Cape. Not far from the lighthouse, on the Te Araroa Beach grows the most branching pohutukawa tree of the country. The tree has 22 trunks. East Cape offers ideal conditions for swimming. The best place for swimming is for example in the beautiful Tolaga Bay, where we can find the longest wharf of New Zealand . The peninsula is a popular place for fishing, too. Other activities offered in East Cape are for example rafting or riding a jet boat on the river Motu.
