Waiheke Island, our beautiful day destination had pristine beaches, gorgeous views, and excellent walks. It’s easy to see why Waiheke Island is considered the jewel in the Hauraki Gulf’s crown to Aucklanders. Although only 35 minutes from Auckland, we felt like we were in a completely different world. We hopped on the Fuller’s ferry from Auckland and journeyed over in beautiful weather I might add. We were definitely blessed with the weather today.
And let me tell you, once we were there, it was definitely hard to leave.
We walked around the stunning coastal headlands and stopped at several beaches. We paid only $10 NZD for a full day bus pass which took us around majority of the island. With so many different beautiful, diverse areas, Waiheke was definitely the perfect day adventure and a must-do if you’re ever in Auckland.
