Book your ferry over and take the car over with you! Waiheke Island has so many stunning spots to explore, taking your rental car with you will mean your adventures will be endless! Here's what we recommend you do when you head over to this little island paradise...


  1. Waiheke has plenty of beautiful walking tracks to explore. There are so many tracks, that there is even a nine-day festival to showcase them all to the rest of the world! If you’d like to check out some vineyards while on a walk, there are a few trails you can take and stop by a winery to make your walk 10 times better!


  1. Are you a bit of an adrenaline junkie? Then we have the perfect thing for you! Ecozip Adventures will take you on a ride of a lifetime, flying you smoothly down into a stunning tract of original and regenerating native forest. You’ll get to see a birds eye view of the island and feel like you’re ‘on top of the world’ in the process. Get your crew together and make a day of it!


  1. Keen to see the island from a different perspective? A fun way to do this is by hiring a scooter or an electric bicycle and cruise the island at your own pace. Grab a helmet, hire a scooter or bike and experience Waiheke in all its glory. The best way to explore on a perfect sunny day. Waiheke has so much to explore! You’ll love it!


  1. Keen to try some of New Zealand’s finest wines? You’re in luck! Waiheke Island has some of the best wines Aotearoa has to offer. We can suggest the following wineries as “must do’s”. Mudbrick Restaurant & Vineyard- they say it’s one of the most romantic places on earth. Dreamy! Stonyridge is another must do, “Nestled in a shimmering valley of olive trees, colourful vines, and the aromas of the south of France”. Cable Bay Vineyard is another go to. You’ll enjoy beautiful hand crafted wines made with top quality fruits all while taking in the stunning views and scenery Waiheke Island has to offer.


  1. We can’t send you to Waiheke without suggesting beaches to hang out at. Waiheke has several great beach spots to chill, swim and soak up the sun. So make sure you pack your togs, towel and a chilly bin with some drinks and fresh food to make the most out of your Waiheke beach experience. Oneroa Bay is one of Waihekes most popular beach spots, when you see it, you’ll understand why! Little Oneroa is a small  sweet beach located at the Eastern end of Oneroa Bay. It’s within walking distance of Oneroa Village. This little beach has everything! Free BBQ, a children’s playground, a large grass area and a pristine white beach.


We could go on and on about all the fun things you can do and see on Waiheke Island, but we might be here a while. That’s why you should go and explore the island for yourself. The food, the scenery, beaches and wineries are enough to draw anyone there.
