During summer, Waiheke Island's accommodation such as its holiday homes and baches may be full and functions, festivals and dance parties come alive as visitors come from all over the country and overseas.
Many visitors come to Waiheke Island to enjoy its fine wineries and wine tours. The island’s climate is well-suited to Bordeaux wine-type grapes and the local winegrowers regularly win awards for their Syrah. Wines tend to be relatively expensive due to the size of the vineyards.
