Vineyards, beaches and beautiful views - what more would you want for a half day trip.
Waiheke Island is definitely a must-see if you have some time during your stay.
The island is a home to an array of beautiful vineyards, olive groves and beaches. And its only a 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland.
You can take in a beautiful lunch at one of the wineries or hang out at one of the beaches.
