Known as the “Island of Wine,” Waiheke Island is the ultimate culinary destination. With a unique micro-climate allowing for a long growing season, the island is home to nearly 30 vineyards - many with restaurants and menus to complement the wine. Oneroa Village and Onetangi Beach also offer restaurant and café options, featuring locally-sourced ingredients and artisan foods produced right on the island.

Whether you’re planning a full-day foodie adventure, an afternoon of wine tastings, or just a special dinner date away from the big city, Waiheke is the perfect destination.
