In addition to the many beautiful beaches and award-winning vineyards and restaurants, Waiheke Island has many other attractions and activities that are guaranteed to keep you entertained regardless of whether you’re staying for the weekend or for a long, relaxing holiday.
Zip along Waiheke on the Ecozip, have a go at archery or clay-bird shooting at Wild on Waiheke or jump on a horse and trek around the island with a Horse Tour. There are many scenic walks on Waiheke, ranging from easy strolls to more challenging walks that require a reasonable level of fitness.
On a Saturday head over to the Ostend's market it's a great place to see the island's colourful characters and buy local food, produce and art.
Little Oneroa beach offers a great place for the children to swim and play in the playground and if you get hungry head across the street for fish and chips or an ice-cream. There really is something for everyone.
Drive off the ferry and head up Donald Bruce road to start your adventure. The Eastern end of the island is not serviced by public transport, this means the roads are quiet and ideal for you to drive.
The loop road is a 55km round trip from Oneroa village so allow a minimum of 2.5 - 4 hours for a trip with stops. We also have a selection of suggested Waiheke Road Trips for you or you can choose to make your own.
Island maps can be picked up at our ferry terminals or onboard the ferry.
The Waiheke Shuttle service connects with the ferry and runs to/from Kennedy Point Ferry Terminal and Oneroa village. If you want to explore the island further you can hop on the local bus from Oneroa taking you to various points on the island including the long white sand beach of Onetangi.
For groups of six or more, pre-bookings can be made with QP Shuttles on mobile 022 634 799 or by emailing email@example.com.
All fares to be paid by cash, efpos, visa or mastercard on the shuttle.
