About Waiheke Island

Waiheke Island named top a destination to visit by the New York Times

Waiheke Island has been dubbed a must-visit destination for 2013 by the New York Times and a Lonely Planet Top 10 Region to visit in 2016.

Waiheke shared the eclectic list with mega-cities such as Rio de Janeiro, the far-flung Falkland Islands, romantic Paris, the Republic of Congo and ski resort Jackson Hole in Wyoming.

The newspaper noted the island’s vineyards, its proximity to Auckland, and mentions “embracing its bohemian side”.

It’s an incredible community … we’ve got a lovely, casual, laid-back sort of lifestyle. We’re diverse, supportive and we have this amazing blossoming food and wine industry. It’s a pretty special place – come over and see it for yourself!
