It is like you are at the end of the world. Waves crashing, sand blowing, sand that goes on forever, huge sand dunes. The forces of nature at work.

We parked in a car park at the start of the beach and walked over the dunes. The tide was going out which gave the impression of just how big the beach actually is. There is a sign saying the beach is a road for four wheeled vehicles. It is an amazing site because you can not see the end... More

Great beach. Great views. Don't drive yourself, get a tour as it's too dangerous. Most car hire insurance is void and you need 4-wheel drive.

If there wasn't the noisy ATVs (small beach vehicles), you could just see this beach as the most peaceful place. We accessed it from Ahipara. There's two or three other roads leading to it. I guess you can find space, peace and quiet walking or riding a bicycle on this long long beach.

Great views on a sunny day. Probably the longest beach in New Zealand, it's a must see! If you have a 4WD you will have a ball but respectfully of the surroundings. Awesome little drive to get up to it, through forrest and country side! Must see!

We visited in January 2017. We booked a tour to the Cape. The beach drive was very nice...great bus driver/tour operator. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Loved the sand dune surfing too. Highly recommended.

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!
