Fabulous driving down the beach for about 35km. If you don't go on a tour take a body board and surf down the dunes at the northern end. Great fun

It is a beautiful beach. We did not have the proper vehicle to drive down the beach but took a good long walk & photographed some gorgeous scenery. It's feels very remote. Be sure to leave your possessions in the trunk of your care & lock up tight.

We travelled with Sand Safaries, almost the whole day very entertaining tour includng Cape Reigna lighthouse, a picknick , and sliding-shooting down the large sand dunes was also exiting.

Don't get me wrong, the beach is vast, the sea is lovely but that is about it.

I went to Ninety Mile Beach with Fullers Great Sights Coach Tours out of Paihia.

We drove down a large portion of the beach at great speed, most of the drive was smooth but you can hit some bumpy patches.

I am glad to say yeah I've been to Ninety Mile Beach but wouldn't go out of my way to do it again.

Only 68 miles long the beach comprises flat hard sand that is frequented by numerous buses racing up and down the length of it. The water was murky when we were there and it was one of those places you had to visit to say you'd done it. We accessed the beach by a 10km gravel road that was wash-boarded from one end to the other; the south access is shorter and paved. There's many much nicer and quieter beaches than this one in Northland.
