This is 90 mile beach, Northland, NZ. It's expanse of beautiful beach and powerful seas is a an incredible sight but you cannot swim here as the waves are too powerful so you only see the occasional fisherman casting his line, but he has to be strong! You can, however, drive on this beach which is a fun thing to do in a big 4WD - my brother loaned us his for our trip (it is actually a public highway!). The other thing about this beach is that it is not actually 90 miles, it is only 55 miles long, my husband tells me it was measured by the settlers using their horses that in those days would walk 30 miles per day and it took them 3 days to walk the beach - I can't actually find reference to this though... Excerpt found from The Lonely Planet Guide to NZ... Ninety Mile Beach on New Zealand's far northwest coast, stretches from Ahipara Bay in the south to Scott's Point at the northernmost end. It actually is about 58 miles in length. It got its name from the estimate which the early farmers in the area used when bringing their cattle to market. They figured they could drive their livestock 30 miles per day and it would take them three days to make the trip from the top to the bottom of the beach. Thus the ninety mile name.
