Waiheke is a fabulous island just 35 minutes from the mainland. Famous for its rows and rows of vineyards and olive farms, Waiheke Island is home to some of New Zealand's most celebrated wineries and creating some of its most renowned wines.
Waiheke Island is New Zealand's most densely populated island. The fact that it has permanent residents and is a tourist hotspot means that it has evolved a good number of activities for you to indulge in. Spend the day out soaking up the sun on Onetagi beach, or any of the 9 others, and head out to a winery just before lunch for a wine tasting tour, since it has so many vineyards and wineries. The island also has a cinema, and an arts theatre for various performances, complimented very well by the local art galleries and studios. Other extremely engaging activities include archery, zip-line, and shooting.
