WAIHEKE ISLAND BEACHES
With its own warm, dry micro-climate, blissful Waiheke Island has emerald waters lapping at the rocky bays on the island’s landward side and some of the best sandy beaches on its ocean flank. Waiheke beaches have long been a favorite escape for city dwellers and visitors alike – white sands, safe swimming, great fishing, coastal walking tracks …
Waiheke’s scenic coastline boasts a diverse range of beautiful beaches.

A picturesque sheltered bay ideal for family swimming. Two barbeque areas and a large children’s playground. Body surfing possible when conditions allow. Beach store across the road.

Gorgeous scenery Val….thanks many.
Critic, for some who do not know all the birds in NZ, would you name them. I notice this on the “Photography Thread” also. One has to remember, people who are new to New Zealand or been gone a long time and also, those birds didn’t always hang out in their area. Lovely picture. Good chance for the massive bird watches in the world! Maybe bring them on down to NZ without the native/wildlife destruction. (no more human waste) go the other way! Thanks a lot.
