Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach Tour with Dune Ride and Lunch

Ride a custom built Waverider coach over the rugged and sandy coastline of Ninety Mile Beach on this full-day guided tour to Cape Reinga. Departing Paihia’s Bay of Islands for the top end of New Zealand’s North Island, you will walk under ancient trees in the Puketi Kauri Forest and go sandboarding down a quicksand stream at Te Paki Sand Dunes.
One of the longest stretches of coastline in New Zealand, 90 Mile Beach may not be exactly 90 miles lengthy – but it’s not short on natural beauty .The beach stretches from just west of Kaitaia all the way to Cape Reinga, a long ribbon of sand along the Aupouri Peninsula. It’s known for spectacular sunsets and for having one of the best left-hand surf breaks in the world. The beach is legitimately a highway but it’s only appropriate for four wheel drive vehicles and when there is high tide it’s impossible to drive on. The long and narrow beach is lined with high sand dunes and bordered by the dense, green Aupouri Forest. Gentle waves crash against the sand and the dune grasses gently sway. It’s easy to see why visiting this beautiful beach is a must on your Bay of Islands itinerary.
