The long sheltering island

The original Māori name for Waiheke was Te Motu-arai-roa, meaning “the long sheltering island” and then when the first European visitors arrived it became known as Motu-Wai-Heke, “island of trickling waters”.

Waiheke Island is renowned for its natural beauty, stunning white-sand beaches, international restaurants, nature walks, luxury accommodation and its gifted art community. The Island is now home to over 20 world-class vineyards due to its temperature, dry climate and is also widely known as the ‘Island of wine, attracting up to 800,000 visitors a year.

In short, it’s the quintessential holiday destination, and the perfect way to celebrate with friends and family.
