Waiheke Island, New Zealand for Wine and Swimming

A great day trip from Auckland is to grab a ferry (1 hour) to Waiheke Island. It’s a quaint little island where you can find great food and wine. We rented scooters and toured around and found an awesome little swimming beach (forget the name, its’ just 15 minutes east of ferry) and then for the afternoon went to StonyRidge where they have a cool vibe going with a sand beach and a place just to hang out for a while and enjoy their great wine. (Not your normally uptight wine tasting experience). We stayed over but could easily have made it a day trip

    We are going to Waiheke in a few weeks and can’t wait. Flying all the way from Seattle too, the scenes of the beaches make it seem like paradise and well worth the journey.

Have you done this? What can you add to this jrrny?
