What a fabulous experience, the beach was all ours we only saw a couple of people walking and 2 cars for the entire length of the beach. Ensure you do you research and check out the tides so you do not get yourself into trouble. Driving on the beach is not something everyone should do you need to know what... More

Expansive vista's, excellent beach with lovely views and a fishing haven, the wild wild west of the upper North Island of New Zealand...simply coastal.

The beach is a good place to contemplate infinity, the sea and sand stretch in all directions. There are several ways to access the beach (tours are of course the easiest but you can do it yourself). Most rental cars won't be insured for driving along the beach. However, due to the actual roads being windy and mountainous in the... More

Our coach driver took us on to the 90 mile beach while on our way back from Cape Reinga. Although it was quite picturesque looking out to the wild sea, while driving along at speed on the almost deserted sands for such a distance, it soon becomes quite boring. Worth experiencing though.bLook out for the wild horses.

This was the first time we'd taken our kids on Ninety Mile Beach. We used a bus service and the kids thought it was amazing racing along the beach. They enjoyed the stops as well.

Beach, beach everywhere and not a soul to see. I love the raw wildness of this beach no matter where you are on it, its hard to be disappointed.

Came here with "Harrisons Cape Runner" bus tour and we stopped two different places on this beach. So much to see, a lot of different shells and we did see seals too. One of the two places we stopped had view to a rock with a hole in the middle...overall very amazing.

We thought we ought to just take a look even when we ran short of time....but it was well worth it! The view and the scale of everything there - the expanse, the wind, the flatness of the beach, the 'breath and depth' of the beach, the foams left by the sea - took your breath away. Just when you...
