Beaches 'n Baches

Seaside villages, cafes, chilling out...

These walks will take you through Oneroa, Blackpool, Surfdale, Sandy Bay and Palm Beach.

In the villages, but off the beaten track. Always close to a café.

Quiet and quirky walkways of essential island character.

Get real, wander through genuine Waiheke.

Weave your way between intimate beaches and hidden coves.
