Our Neighbourhood GolfBeach

Our island is the home of a diverse mixture of people from all walks of life including the very wealthy and the creative.

More about the neighbourhood

We have many shops including a supermarket, shops for hardware, organic produce, clothes, souvenirs, several liquor outlets, 3 petrol stations, an excellent taxi and bus service, plus car and cycle hire services & two medical centres. The island has a wide range of live entertainment. Waiheke is renowned for the quality of wines that it produces and there are more the 20 vineyards in close proximity, many with cafes where lunch and tastings can be experienced during the warm summer days. Many artists work on the island and have regular displays of their work. There are many tracks around the beautiful bays for hiking and native birds abound in the forest. We have an art museum, a musical museum, a golf course, and active sports club, horse riding and of course magnificent beaches where swimmimng is safe. Boating is popular, kayaking and paragliding is available during summer months, and fishing can be rewarding with the right local knowledge. There are excellent restaurants on the Island where reservations must be made to ensure seats during the summer period. New Zealand is not making any new islands at present, and consequently land prices have soared on Waiheke Island as people rush to purchase land and property on a small piece of exotic real estate that is 'of the city but removed from the city'
