Waiheke Island

For a taste of island bliss just a stone's throw from central Auckland, hop on a ferry to Waiheke Island - it's the perfect escape. Transport is provided primarily via the passenger ferry from the downtown waterfront or you can take your car on the Half Moon Bay vehicle ferry.

Waiheke is an island of magical coastal views, white sand beaches, rocky coves, vineyards, olive groves, fine dining, relaxed cafés, art and artisans.

The island boasts numerous activities including a 9 hole golf course, a daring ride on an eco zip-line, scenic walks and more opportunities to fish, swim, kayak or paddle board in the sparkling waters than you could dream of.

A range of tasteful, luxurious accommodation is dotted across the island within easy reach of the ferries and all the best attractions.
