Reef Point and Ship Wreck Bay (Shippies) is a world renowned left hand point break said to be one of the best in Australasia. As a surf spot, the area was first bought to the world scene by the surfing movie, Endless Summer back in the 1960’s. Depending on conditions the area also has good beach breaks and we often have Wind Surfers and Kite Surfers in the bay. The Geography of the area is such that if conditions are not right at Shippies it is only a short drive to the east coast. Surf lessons and surf boards are available in the area.

The Ahipara Links is a 18 Hole links golf course situated adjacent to 90 Mile beach giving it wonderful views of the point and the bay from many parts of the course.. This challenging course is very under utilized making it, in most instances, very easy for any golfer to roll up and play. Green Fees are only $30.00 for a full round or $20.00 for 9 holes. Golf Club, Trundler & Cart hire available. If the 19th is not open at the end of your round, feel free to visit the 20th. (The bar at the Bay View)

Horse Treks
Ahipara Horse Treks do Treks in the area on 90 Mile Beach and gentle grassland. Treks are 2 hours and they cater for both the novice and experienced rider. Times depend on tides.
Bookings essential. Phone 09 409 3551 Cape Reinga Tours
There are a number of companies operating tours to the cape. The standard trip is by bus, leaving around 8:30am and returning around 5:00pm. Depending on the tides this tour will go up 90 Mile Beach and back down the road or vice versa. Another option is to arrange a personalized tour. These are usually in smaller vehicles and will basically do the tour to suit the client,

If you are staying in Ahipara, and wish to do the bus tour we suggest Sand Safaries as they are the only one that will pick you up at your accommodation and drop you back at the end of the tour.
Phone 09 408 1778
If you wish to arrange a personalized tour we suggest Phil Cross of Far North Outback Adventures. As he is very popular and busy, you will need to arrange this with Phil sometime well before your required trip to ensure availability.
Phone 09 408 0927
The beach directly in front of the motel is safe for swimming but bathers should always make themselves familiar with the local conditions. When the tide is in the lower half, there are warm, shallow rock pools which often have small fish and other small sea creatures. A great playground for supervised young kids.
