Fantastic white sandy beaches that do what it says on the tin , they go on for 90 miles . Huge dunes that you can hire a sand board and wizz down , climbing back up can be exhausting though . Vehicles are even allowed to drive along the sands , if you don't mind wrecking your vehicle with salt... More

Went with the Harrison's cape runner day trip and one of the high lights was a drive along 90 mile beach something other tour companies cannot do.

Had a great trip with a bus company, its something I've been meaning to do for such a long time. Friends suggested I do a bus trip/tour unless you have a 4 wheel drive you would get stuck and yes there were 2 vehicles stuck when we went through!

A beautiful place, but with hidden dangers - definitely best to go with a guided coach tour - they get trained for this. Open and wind swept it's a great way to spend a little time between other attractions.

People had tried to explain here to me, but nothing prepared me for the actuality. Definitely different, definitely a must do - but 10 ks is enough!

Unless you really know what you're doing, I would suggest visiting this place with one of the organised bus tours. Although any vehicle in theory *could* get to the beach (certainly any 4WD vehicle), many come to grief every year (just a few days ago apparently, a camper-van got smashed to pieces against rocks at the bluff). The driving on... More

One of the biggests beaches of the north island. You can ride jeeps (make sure that you're driving a 4X4, otherwise you'll got jammed). When I've been there, the water was warm but i coudn't swin.. It was to windy. This beach was the most "magical" places that I've had visited em NZ. I don't know exactly why, just felt... More

Recommending you take a bus tour that drives from Cape Reinga back to Kaitaia on the beach. Great scenery - worth your while.

We had a bus tour by Harrison's ... much easier for everyone and less damage to your car from the salt water and you need 4 wheel drive to get you out of the soft sand.
