Life on Waiheke Island revolves around its sparkling waters and there are a host of activities available for you to take full advantage of it. Waiheke's clear shallow inshore waters are safe for swimming and popular with kite surfers, paddle boarders and kayakers alike. There's a lot of fun to be had for all the family exploring hidden coves and inlets. Everything you need can be rented on the island.
Onetangi and Palm Beach are Waiheke's best beaches for surfing with their fun beach breaks. For those keen to explore a little further afield, arrange a fishing or sailing charter for the day - you might see orcas and dolphins. Or take a romantic twilight cruise. Exploring Waiheke and the Hauraki Gulf by sea is an idyllic way to experience the stunning coast and fantastic marine life.
