Easy way to Waiheke is by ferry and hop-on-hop-off bus, which is what I did. But there is easy car hire on the island, so if you want to go to wineries at your own pace, or see the large part of the island not covered by the bus route, hire a car or bicycle. The island is truly delightful. I was there on a cloudless, brilliant blue day and it was like paradise. I did the bus trip and ended up at Mudbrick Restaurant (which I'd pre-booked) and had the most delicious lunch, sitting out on the terrace looking over the vineyards to the water. Perfect.

Nice island just off of Auckland city,. Accessible by Ferry fro Auckland, I would recommend getting a car in Auckland and driving it onto the ferry, rather than renting on the island as that can be more expensive. Some nice places to see and good places to eat. We went to Mudbrick which was very nice and had some great views of the island.

Came here from half moon bay rather than central auckland..got ferry across...seats all wet ad the man piped water across the boat as we entered. Had to get shuttle into town from ferry...from there you can catch buses or hopon hopoff tours. We got taxi instead as much cheaper for 3. Island has lots of wineries and visited 3 close together with great views. Lovely day trip

Just 40 minutes ferry ride from Auckland city terminal ($ 25.00 return ticket) and you are in the midst of natural wonders. The island is famous for its vineyards, olive groves and nice beaches - Oneroa Beach being the most visited which has nice white sand and all the facilities you expect including nearby nice eating joints. For exploring the island, you can hire bicyle or bike or there is the budget option of public bus ($ 10.00 for whole day). We visited after the Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Highly recommended if you are in Auckland.
