Beaches in winters, even the warm winters of the FarNorth, are invariably wind-swept, and the seas un-swimmable. We'd been warned of the ferocious riptide by a friend who'd been rescued from the seas off 90 mile beach by an Air/Sea Rescue helicopter. So we left our swimwear at home. In Estonia. Any idea of driving on the sands, there were... More

A strip of sand along the Pacific being used as a highway with a 100 km per hour restriction It is actually only about 55 miles long. Our coach driver stopped the vehicle along a lovely beach and allowed us to play in the sand, touch the waves and watch the fishermen reel their catch.

Knowing Top Gear had been and filmed here was so cool. It was a long drive but the views of the beach and the sea were amazing. Definitely worth a visit!

An amazing experience, but like us, unless you're local, best to take a guided tour. The sea is very dangerous for swimming, not sure about surfing. From what we saw, very good for fishing. A unique experience as nothing to compare in the UK. Also beware if driving, road regulations apply and the tide needs to be well watched.

Full of character, black sand. This beach should be treated with respect when driving, fishing or swimming. There are a lot or rips. Best driven on low tides watch the sweeps that can come out of nowhere! Dig for pipis at low tide.

This is a New Zealand experience you won't forget... Take the trip along 90 mile beach and down the Te Paki stream back onto the main road - but be careful!!! If you are taking your own car, make sure that you drive 3 hours after high tide - and give your car a good wash afterwards to remove the... More

its a highway so remember people drive cars on it, you don't have the beach to yourself be careful. But it is so beautiful. the west coast tide can be strong so I wouldn't say a safe beach for little children, great for fishing and surfing.

We were pleased to drop in quickly to see Ninety Mile Beach after a very full day driving to Cape Reinga. We know next time we will do the much talked about and highly recommended bus ride on Ninety Mile Beach. Stand any where on this beach and you will see miles and miles of beach and sand. Stunning!
