Kahurangi Point is a headland on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island,[1] overlooking the Tasman Sea. It is located in Kahurangi National Park between Karamea and Farewell Spit.

Kahurangi Point is traditionally regarded as the northernmost point of the West Coast region, although for most purposes it is considered part of the Tasman/Nelson region.
