One of my favourite summer activities? Spending a day on Waiheke, drinking great wine and eating fine food! A kiwi summer wouldn’t feel complete with at least a day trip to this gorgeous island located just a 40 minute ferry ride from Downtown Auckland.
If you are planning on coming to New Zealand anytime soon or you already live here, you really need to head up north to visit the Karikari Peninsula. Over the summer months this place is just a dream and yet still remains quiet enough for a relaxing break.
