27 Kaka Street, Ahipara, North Island.



Ninety-Mile Beach is the fabled strip of sand that stretches from Ahipara to Scott Point, five kilometres south of Cape Maria van Diemen. Renowned for spectacular sunsets and boasting one of the best left hand surf breaks in the world, Ninety Mile Beach is an almost never-ending paradise. This beach is officially a highway, but is really only suitable for 4WD vehicles and is safe to drive only at specific times of the tides. Rental companies won't allow their cars on the sand, mostly for safety reasons. The easy way to drive along the beach is to catch a coach tour from Kaitaia. Beach activities range from surfcasting and swimming to bodyboarding down the sand dunes. Dogs must be on a leash. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

I drove to this exit in my 4x4 camper van, but after watching an SUV get stuck and have to back out to try again I decided to head back north to the 90 Mile Beach Holiday Park exit. There's a lot of dry sand on a sideways slope, so I was concerned about ground clearance.
