Waiheke Island

Auckland - Waiheke Island, New Zealand

Waiheke Island, known as New Zealand's 'island of wine' is a favoured holiday destination with a very large number of Auckland holiday homes. Waiheke Island is located about 18 kilometres from Auckland in the gulf and is the second-largest island in the Hauraki Gulf after Great Barrier Island. It is an ideal destination to relax and enjoy its fine wines, wine tours and many other attractions. Waiheke Island is easily accessed via regular ferries and domestic flights. Waiheke Island was also named in the Lonely Planet's top ten places to visit in 2016. more

Many consider Waiheke Island to be one of the most magical parts of their Auckland experience. Its climate is also slightly more agreeable than Auckland with slightly warmer temperatures, less humidity, less rain and more sunshine. Waiheke Island sports many scenic beaches including the main beach, Oneroa, Little Oneroa, Palm, Little Palm (clothing optional and locally known as the Nudie Beach), Blackpool (popular for kayaking and windsurfing), Surfdale (kitesurfing), Onetangi (sandcastle building) and Cactus Bay beaches.

Waiheke has a small population of less than 10,000 inhabitants but during the summer season it is a very popular holiday spot with many Auckland holiday makers coming to relax in this island paradise. 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.
