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

We travelled with Harrisons Cape Runner. These people take you off the beaten track to other secluded beaches, which are not visited by other tours. All in all, a very pleasant day.

I love 90 mile beach! To stand about half way and look both ways and see nothing but beach and dunes and water is incredible. It's great for swimming... or getting pounded by the waves :) Where else can you see locals riding their horses bareback along the beach, kids on their quads pulling other kids along the shallows on...

Where else in the world could you drive along a beach? The rules of the road are observed. A four wheel drive is recommended for good reason.

As a passenger on Harrison's bus trip it was fascinating, and as part of the whole, great. On the day we went it was misty, so you could only see part of the "90" mile beach at any time. You wouldn't want to stroll along it, it's one long beach. Glad we went - would I go back? - it's... More

There is a sandy beach for as far as you can see. You won't find crowded beaches here. The kids liked to play in the rock pools and found some interesting critters. You have to be mindful of the waves as some can be "aggressive". Bring a small surf board in order to float on the waves. Lots of fun.... More
