Watersports enthusiasts will thrive off the shore of Waiheke Island’s largest beach. In the waters of Onetangi Bay you can surf, swim, sea kayak and get wet and sporty in numerous other ways. A number of beachfront accommodations grant easy access to the beach and the bay. The nearby Waiheke Island Historic Village with the Woolshed celebrates a culture that originated over half a millennium ago.
