Ninety Mile Beach..., Northland: 5 reviews and 9 photos

  Ninety Mile Beach, 1987

Ninety Mile Beach is actually closer to 90kms, but when you're on it, it feels awfully long!
You can get special coach trips that roar through the surf and stop at sand dunes where you can boogie board down them.
If you have your own transport, look for signposted entries to the beach off State Highway 1. There's one not far north of Ahipara town. It can be dangerous taking your own car onto the beach, and rental cars are not covered by insurance.
This is an old (and dodgy) photo from 1987 on a family trip... I'll do better next time!

Directions: Ninety Mile Beach is in the far north. You need to head north from Kaitaia, this areas main town. You can get special package coach trips that drive on the beach in Kaitaia for about $NZ45.
