Reviewed January 21, 2013

take a bus tour to the cape, driving out on the beach, stopping at several spots along the way for sliding, ice cream, lunch, and a longish walk to the lighthouse.

“Sealed road - yeah”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Finally sealed so we can take the bike up!
Liked the face lift at the entrance.
A mobile coffee / ice cream truck would do well in peak periods!

“90 Mile beach”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

You have to go there. It is vast and the traffic, buses and cars whizz up and down. Lovely spot. The sand is lovely and the sea great for a swim. there was nothing that I disliked about it. We camped for one night right on the beach and it's a must if you are in the area. There are bus trips that run the length of the beach. It is a recognised road complete with road signs.

“It's a really long beach. We're done here.”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Well, it's really long. Don't drive on it without a four wheel drive. No, seriously, don't. There's a reason the hire car companies and the insurance people won't cover you: we saw a van stuck in the sand for a couple of hours, mere metres from the start of the beach. Idiots.

Head up to the Te Paki Sanddunes rather than the beach itself. The Dunes are AMAZING.

“beautiful”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

very beautiful and full of history but do a tour to make the most of it. Without a guide you won't know the significance of the place. It also makes sure your safe driving along the beach. Sand Safair's were fantastic
