Top place to go with all the family. One of the only places in the world you can drive for this long at highway speeds along a beach. good way to get to the cape and to Te Paki sand dunes

Pretty awesome beach. Just wish that I had a four wheel drive to go cruising along it. Will visit it again.

Massive beach which just seems to go on forever. Driving on the beach is a lot of fun but if you are not a local you are best advised to have a 4WD and make sure the tide is out. But then it is actually quite straightforward if you find the good access road at the holiday camp.

We lost our keys and a Maori man who was driving on the beach helped us get going again. Don't know your name but thank you so much!

You need to make sure of the tides but this is an unbelievable ride. It's over 50km riding on the beach. The views are breathtakingly beautiful ! You just have to do this ride.

We stayed at Awanui, and receptionist at van park recommended and booked Harrisons Cape Runner for us. What a great day we had. We visited in July, and were lucky to get a nice day. The bus driver/tour guide was very interesting with anecdotes, history, singing, nice picnic lunch. Beautiful beaches and scenery, great fun (even for us older folks)... More
