Take in the sea views at Stony Batter, a historical reserve lying at the eastern end of Waiheke Island. The idiosyncratic rocky outcrops and formations littering the landscape create an interesting topography. With clear views of the Hauraki Gulf, the reserve boasts numerous walking routes appropriate for all members of the family.
