The small settlement of Ostend is located on the southern side of the island.
With Anzac Bay on one side and Okahuiti Creek on the other, Ostend is the perfect place for those who want to be close to shops, cafés, one of the best bakeries on the island and the atmosphere of a bustling little community. And you can still enjoy Waiheke's typical stunning sea and vineyard views.
The vibrant Saturday community market is a great drawcard for residents and visitors alike. Enjoy a lazy browse through the arts and crafts stalls and pick up some fresh bread and other fantastic produce. Meet the locals over a cup of Island Coffee while the kids enjoy a pony ride.
Ostend is a great central location on Waiheke, just a short distance to the northern sandy beaches and close to wineries, walks and a range of fun island activities.
