Do the Harrison Cape Runner tour

We had an excellent coach trip which was made so much more interesting by the humour of the driver, the area was very well explained and the views were stunning

Its actually just a sandy road (and only 60 miles long at that) - nothing to look at but if you want the experience of driving like a lunatic at break neck speeds then its terrific.

Went to watch the sunset - which was lovely, a bit of a rough drive out - but the beach is beautiful - we had a great game of touch with the family.

Best beach highway and sand boarding was fun! Our tour guide Wendy was always ahead of time so we enjoy the area all by our small group! Must try!

I have visited Ninety Mile Beach for the past 45 years and it never gets old. Any number of activities can be experienced on the vast expanse of sand and sea.One of NZ's hidden treasures.

First visit here and its a stunner. The view to either side is captivating, the sun sets phenomenal. Dug for Tuatua at low tide, they were delicious. Drove along to the Te Paki Sand dunes, passing hikers walking it.

Don't underestimate this beach. She's a dangerous beauty. Time it right to drive. Watch for other people, dogs and long lines. Not an ideal swimming beach unless you are at Ahipara as the surf is strong with many rips. Wonderful beach for a family or romantic walk.

Physically it is a "highway" as racing buses, cars or motorcycles can run up to 100 km kph similar to any motorways in NZ. Beautiful and magnificent white yellowish pure fine sand stretches continuously along 88 km (55 miles) long, not exactly 90 miles as its popular name. You can enjoy this, either by Guided Tours, or using your own... More

Awesome place. Huge beach with plenty of shelves to pick up. you can go by bus, by car... I heard most of car rentals dont allow their cars on the sand but you can simply park close to the beach and walk afterwaeds. the road to the beach is pretty dusty and bumpy.
