It was so fun to be able to cruise along a beach at break neck speeds, do donuts, and park off to have a picnic in the vast openness of the area. At the end of the beach the path takes you up a river bed with huge sand dunes on the left, and green forests on the right. the landscape is truly spectacular!
We even came across a local called "Uncle" who invited us for a cup of tea, he was full of stories and information about the area. A fun little added unexpected bonus.
I would not do 90 mile beach in one of the organised tours - we could see the buses going past us on the beach, and it was easy to tell that all the passengers wished they were us!

All of 90 mile beach is beautiful and amazing. Definitely recommended for anyone visiting the area. Shipwreck bay is pretty special too and we love all of the rock pools along the beach too.

All the advice we had in our desire to go to Cape Reinga was to leave our car behind and travel on the beach by tour bus.
It was great advice - we've told the story in our review of the Sand Safari tour.
We saw the beach on a misty winter's day, but it was everything as magical as we'd expected. Do it!

miles and miles of clean unpopulated beach. You can gather tuatua - (pipi) shellfish everyday if you should care to do so, and make the most delicious fritters or soup. You can surf, fish swim, kayak or just rock-hop at the southern end. When the sun sets on the horizon it is purely spectacular and makes for great pictures. The sand dunes which are endless and range in size can be surfed down with the right vessel. The beach is steeped in local maori history and if you take one of the bus trips down the beach you will find out all about this. There are plenty of places to stay and relax with the sound of the waves peacefully lulling you to sleep- perfect!
