Island of Wine
Head to Waiheke Island, a place of white sandy beaches, palm trees, great wine, and relaxation, just 35 minutes off the coast of Auckland. Jump on a ferry, bringing your bike or car with you, and explore the welcoming, paradisal island. Laze on the beach, or circle the coast in a boat, before sitting down at a winery tasting room and enjoying a locally produced vintage. Buses, taxis, and vehicle rental services make it easy to tour Waiheke Island, and a variety of accommodations let you extend your stay.
