Stunning views, wide open spaces, beautiful! There are many conflicting messages regarding 2 wheel drive vehicles. The short version: the 2 entry points just north of Kaitaia are the easiest, and you can definitely get on and off the beach without too much trouble, we went there with a VW Passat 2 wheel drive. Waipapakuri just north of Awanui is... More

hugh beach, beautiful, water too cold to swim, nice to have a long walk. What we didn't like is that there are also cars allowed on the beach. 4wheel drive cars are raising up and down the beach.

Great place on a beautiful day. Going with a tour is awesome because you get history as well as local knowledge.

Did this as part of a Cape Reinga tour and it was my favourite part. Wish I had of had more time to spend there with either a bike or own AWD car rental and a camp night. It is so quiet and peacful, so few people even in busy season, perhaps maybe just because there is such a vast... More

A wonderfully expansive space. Seeing the people harvesting Toheroa made me feel like I was in a time machine to an older New Zealand. The sense of space is amazing.

The ninety miles beach which is actually only about 60 miles is a must see. You can only access it with a 4WD car or you have to book a tour. When you have seen Fraser Island you just may be happy to only visit the giant dunes which actually are a great experience, just walking up and down or... More

My husband and I drove to the 90 Mile beach on Jan 3rd, 2016. We had a little Toyota Corolla as our hire car and took the West Coast Road just after Awanui down to the beach. You pass through logged forest and then there is a section of forest which is just magical like out of a horror movie.... More
