Castlepoint is a small beachside settlement in the Wairarapa region of the North Island. The town was named Castlepoint in 1770 by Captain Cook, who was thought it looked similar to the battlements of a castle. more
Castlepoint is ideally located for a weekend away from Wellington, or day trip from Masterton, and offers a range of activities including fishing, horse riding, hiking, jet-boating, surfing, swimming, kayaking and more.
Castlepoint is home to a lighthouse that stands near the top of the northern end of a reef. You can walk across the reef to the lighthouse.
Castlepoint is located on the east coast of the Wairarapa (North Island) about one hour's drive from Masterton. The Castlepoint Scenic Reserve is probably one of the most photogenic (and windiest) locations in the North Island. Aside from the spectacular views, you may also see the Castlepoint daisy, brachyglottis compactus, found only on the crumbled limestone of the reef.
