Loved the horse trek along the beach. The sand dunes are so high and the seafood is to die for. Views are more than spectacular and I could have sat all day just looking out at the ocean, maybe hoping for something to poke its head out of the water.

It's quite a sight to have these huge sand dunes right by the shore. I went with a tour bus that brought boogie boards for sand boarding, but I saw a stand where you can rent one for about NZD $15 to go sand boarding on your own. The dunes are quite tall (from 80 to 100+ meters), so you... More

An amazing beach that stretches for miles with fantastic sand dunes at the northern most end. Take the bus tour as it is safer as the beach can be a dangerous place for cars if you do not know it.

For sheer exhilaration, travel the length by bike on pedal power! Along with 4 others we started off from Te Paki stream and finished 87kms later at Ahipara. The day dawned fine and at 6am we along with our own ordinary road bikes were picked up from Mainstreet Lodge backpackers in Kaitaia and then deposited on the top end of... More

Been to the ninety mile beach twice. Once on a rainy day with a tour and once self drive on a sunny day. If it is a rainy day, just drop by to have a quick look at the great expanse. Drive on it if your car rental allows you to, just be mindful if you decide to stop or... More

By all means, take the bus trip up to Ninety Mile Beach and enjoy the antics and delivery of "Barry" the incredible Maori bus driver for Fuller's Great Sights tours. He talks with humour and insight and shares his beloved Maori culture so wonderfully with all his charges. And he knows how to have fun. But the beach, WOW. Be... More
