It's not 90 miles

Why not drive down it at low tide or hire a horse and canter along the shore. It's stunning and literally goes on for miles. If you go to the north you should take some time to... read more

Why not drive down it at low tide or hire a horse and canter along the shore. It's stunning and literally goes on for miles. If you go to the north you should take some time to have a walk on the beach, it's beautiful!

Quad biking on 90 mile beach was the best experience of the whole trip. There is a place in Ahipara that rents them, I highly recommend it.

If you make it up to the Bay of Islands, you should come up to Ninety Mile Beach, which isn't in fact 90 miles! We went on an organised tour up the beach today, and couldn't be happier. It is just gorgeous. The waves rolling in, little (and some big!) seals sunning themselves on the beach, the Te Paki sand... More

Ninety Mile beach is my backyard, I grew up on this beach and some day I will leave along this beach for the final time, according to maori legend. There is heaps to do, Harrisons Cape-runner tours is my favourite when I am up north but the other companies are also just as reliable and they all go the same... More

Its a different experience to drive up a long beach of white sand with surf on one side and dunes on the other

90 mile beach is a place you have to see to believe--white sand beaches and crashing waves as far as the eye can see. We visited the area with Harrison's Cape Runner and loved every second. Be sure that you make it all the way to the Cape to see the lighthouse and take that beautiful walk out to where... More

Again one of those reviews that miight be redundant cause if you go all the way up to paihia you must go up to cape reinga! Most companies start early drive on ninety mile beach, do the dune sliding and go to cape reinga and a swim beach after. The one we went had showers.anyhow don't miss going!

The beach stretched on for miles. Lovely and mostly deserted. It's a pleasant drive to the northern tip of the North Island. Plenty of summer rentals available.

We did a tour to Cape Reinga with Fullers Great Sights and driving back along the sand of 90 Mile Beach was an added bonus. After leaving Cape Reinga we headed around the coast a short way to the sand hills where the coach stopped and took out the sand boards for those who wanted to board down. A good... More

Facing the west, this beach catches some stiff winds and therefore tends to look very rugged. The opportunities for photographs are plentiful up and down the beach but as it was winter when we visited, we did not go in for a swim.
