Getting There:
The ferry from Auckland departs hourly to Waiheke Island and the trip is approximate 40 minutes. The first ferry is a 6am on weekdays and Saturday and 7am on Sundays. The final return ferry is a 12:30 midnight and 10pm on Sundays. A return ticket costs NZ$35.

We stayed at Hekeurua Lodge, located not far from the centre of Oneroa. Clean and comfortable, newly decorated with a pool and jacuzzi, it comes highly recommended for those on a budget. A double room with cost you around NZ$80 per night.

Waiheke is a place to splurge on delicious food. Try eating at some of the wineries, particularly Cable Bay Vineyard and Mudbrick Vineyard (both of these have beautiful views of Auckland by night). For breakfast, don’t miss Delight Cafe in Oneroa.
