This is an experience that you have to do. You can not put this into words. The beauty of the white sand as it meet the ocean is just breath taking.

After living in New Zealand for quite some time I really wanted to see this part of the North Island. Breathtakingly beautiful and worth a visit if you like peace and quiet, long empty beaches and huge sand hills.

A drive along the beach good photo opportunities and sand surfing down the dunes.You must be prepared as conditions change all of the time, watch tide times and have equipment onboard to get out of trouble if needed

Well worth going on a four-wheel drive tour just to drive along this beautiful stretch of isolated beach. Get out and walk a bit if you can. Plentiful bird life too. No houses for kilometres, no shops, no litter.

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.
