Walks on Waiheke
Whether it is the quiet solitude and unique fragrance of the native bush or the stunning views from cliff-tops and headlands which appeals, Waiheke's walkways offer a diversity and tranquility rarely found so close to the city. There are many areas of historic interest and large tracts of reserve land. The numerous native wood pigeons are fascinating to observe and beautiful in flight. While Waiheke Island is generally sunnier and warmer than Auckland, it is always advisable to carry warm clothing, use sunscreen, wear a sunhat and sensible walking shoes, and take plenty of liquids. Many of the island's roads are narrow and winding so care should be taken when walking on these. Keep a lookout for signs showing an alternative route.
