Waiheke Island

Waiheke Island is situated in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand, 17.7 km (about 35 minutes by ferry) from Auckland.

Of the Hauraki Gulf islands, Waiheke is the second-largest (after Great Barrier Island), the most populated and the most accessible by regular ferry and air services.

Waiheke is the third most populated island in New Zealand, after the North and South Islands. The island is 19.3 km long from east to west and varies in width from 0.64 km to 9.65 km, with an area of 92 km2.

Waiheke is very hilly with few flat areas, the highest point being Maunganui at 231 metres, and the coastline is 133.5 km including 40 km of beaches.

This magical island is famous for its world-class wineries and thriving art scene. You'll find sandy swimming beaches, dramatic coastal walks and scenery, and a great selection of accommodation, restaurants, cafés and wineries.

Situated in the Hauraki Gulf, Waiheke Island enjoys a subtropical climate and 100 km of coastline.
If you're after adventure, Waiheke Island has it all.

I was on a boat travelling to Coromandel – the land in the far distance when I took this photo last year. This is a small island off the coast of Waiheke. And I have posted a photo of one of the bays opposite this island. We stayed at Waiheke Island this year when my son was married, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
