Ninety mile beach is the Must Go place when you come to New Zealand. It's nice to take a one day bus trip there. The long beach drive is so much fun and the unique view of the beach is unforgettable.

A 60 Mile long beach with sand that allows cars and coaches to drive along at low tide. Very impressive activity to do although it's not 90 miles long. Because it's isolated it was very quiet.

Beautiful beach area with packed sand that you can go for a nice drive along the beach. Make sure you have the right car to go in ...you wouldn't want to have to call a tow truck to pull you out.

This ninety miles beach literally is a "highway" where cars can run (allowed) up to 100km/h. Probably it is unwise to let the dog free running and playing without leash.

Absolutely. The beach is only usable for a car when low tide, just be careful of soft sand. The beach has few access roads so make sure of your exit or just drive back the same way after visiting beach. Also consider... More
