Reason to go north

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.

We went on this beach with Fullers GreatSights and it was really awesome! the bus frove in the water and splashed against the waves! The beach was big and beautiful, and there was a half burried deck chair in the sand that I sat on. My favourite photo of my partner and I was taken by someone on our bus... More

Ninety Mile Beach is peaceful - especially @ this time of year (mid-winter). Yesterday, we only saw a father with his 2 boys while on our 1 hour walk. You can walk a well-behaved dog here, there's plenty of room for them to run safely & take a quick dip in the sea NB: There's a nesting colony @ Ahipara;... More

I live 10 minutes from 90 mile beach. We go for walks here, and fish to feed our family. It is not somewhere I swim but it is a soothing place.

We only had the day so decided to drive to one end of the beach at Ahipara just to have a look around. Its a tranquil and beautiful area, although I imagine it would be even nicer in summer. The rain meant we couldn't see very far down the beach, and getting stuck in a swamp trying to get onto... More

It is worth driving to the top of the North Island, Take your time, there are so many vantage points to stop and look.

The Ninety-Mile beach is a beautiful beach on the North island of New Zealand. Surrounded by dunes, flat sand and an active Tasman Sea, it attracts all kinds of people. However it is far from being a safe place, especially if someone decides to swim in the sea. It is renowned for its left hand surf breaks and its beautiful... More

Best beach in the world, stacks of room, can drive on it, but be careful you can't swim anywhere you please, locals have the best knowledge of the place and the best swimming spots so hook up with one of them
