We had a great day tour of Ninety Mile Beach and Cape Reinga with Dune Rider and expert guide, Daniel. We were picked up from our motel in Kaitaia at 9am, taken along the sandy Ninety Mile Beach at low tide. Then enjoyed the thrill of sand dune surfing before spending nearly an hour at beautiful Cape Reinga. Daniel provided... More

the length of the beach and the fact that you can drive on it with 4 wheel drive or tour coach great for tourists and close to other attractions.

I didn't do the entire drive along it, just few parts but it feels so good to be able to drive on the beach, really. The beach is also good for surfing in some parts, and the bluff is a really good fishing spot.

The beach will stupefy its visitors, with its tremendous length and the crashing of waves. However, as my title may have already indicated, my visit was made with a vehicle that became immobilised almost immediately, as we entered the dry sand. I can imagine the amount of fun that would be generated, if a vehicle suitable for off-road conditions were... More

We had booked to go on the 90 Mile Excursion organised by Harrisons Cape Reinga Tours. A lovely way to spend a day as the drive along the beach was lovely with the waves crashing on the shore line, at times just metres away from the coach. The drive along the river bed was a novel experience and the majority... More

I hiked the entire length of the beach and after first 2 days of walking found it extremely boring. The scenery is never-ending and dull. Locals use it as a country road, so there are constantly cars, trucks, and buses going back and forth. It is disected by freshwater streams every now and then and lonely fishermen. At no point...

This was a really good day out with Sand Safaris, one of the companies who "do" 90 mile beach. Cost was 50 or 55 $NZ depending on your starting point - really good value considering how much fuel you would you use getting up to Cape Reigna and no worries about getting stuck. A blast up the beach, photo stops,... More

Very glad that we did a tour of the beach - we would have endeavoured to drive on the beach, but having been there and done that, we would very likely have ended up stuck. Dune climbing is a must, but hard on the legs, Dune boarding great fun!

Great value, great vehicle, great driver (Robin). We enjoyed our day even with the wet drizzly day, lunch was light but at the price ($50pp) you couldn't expect much more and it filled the spot. Robins dry humour, infectious laugh and local knowledge entertained us between stops and the local scenery spoke for itself. 7.5 hours of aventure
