Ninety Mile Beach is the longest beach in New Zealand . It is located in the northern part of the North Island, particularly on the western coast of the peninsula Aupori. Ninety Mile Beach is called 90-mile-beach, but on contrary to its name it measures only 55 miles (88 km) . This area was once covered by forests, but the massive flooding during the ice age destroyed the dammar pines. Thanks to its hard sandy surface, Ninety Mile Beach is a popular track for cars, excursion buses, motorcycles and bikes. We can often see a wreck stranded in the sand dunes of Ninety Mile Beach. The largest sand dunes of Ninety Mile Beach are located in the northern part of the beach called Te Paki, where tours are organized to surf on the sand dunes. Even if you do not have an equipment, you can surf on the sand dunes on almost anything. Some of the dunes can be up to 143 m high. Pine forests were planted on the edges of Ninety Mile Beach to prevent the further movement of the sand dunes towards the inland. Other popular activities on Ninety Mile Beach are fishing and collecting shellfish. One person is allowed to take away maximum 150 pieces of the tuatua shellfish and 10 pieces of the paua shellfish (abalone) daily. Both species certainly mean a pleasant variation of the menu. Ninety Mile Beach is a very popular tourist destination with pleasant temperatures all year round, virgin nature with beautiful sea and the exceptional experience of a tourist bus ride directly on the beach.
