Hello! I am planning to visit Bay of Islands with a couple of friends around the 3rd week of november 2015.. But we are planning to self drive from Paihia to Cape Reinga, checking out 90 mile beach on the way.. Any suggestions about this trip? Also, does it make sense to check into a hostel/hotel aorund cape/90 mile? or should we return to Paihia the same day?
