Half Moon Bay Guide

Laying home to some of the most expensive and affluent areas of Auckland, Half Moon Bay is a sea of scenic walking trails, wonderfully verdant parks and its famous marina, which hosts over 500 boats in its impressive docks.

When the weather is warm and the atmosphere is serene, many locals and tourists congregate at the collection of cafes overlooking the harbour, enjoying a fresh beer or a hearty cup of coffee before setting off on their adventure.

Almost everyone who chooses to visit the sanguine suburb does so to board the ferry to Waiheke Island, a pivotal transport link for the region. The port’s prevalence was the reason for the pretty aesthetics of the ferry terminal and surrounding harbour, so many who travel will return to the charming port.

Most choose to head there via car, which is a short drive from the centre of Auckland, and has ample parking and passenger facilities.

Waiheke Guide

Waiheke Island sits in the Hauraki Gulf of Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, and is the nation’s most densely populated island. The Waiheke ferry timetable includes over 30 sailings every day from Auckland Harbour, as well as numerous daily routes from Devonport and Half Moon Bay.

The wineries of Waiheke are considered world-class, set among idyllic countryside overlooking the island’s glorious beaches and glistening blue water. While relaxation is the main draw for visitors, the island is a playground for thrill seekers, with kayaking, forested hiking, snorkelling and fresh water swimming just some of the available activities.

Historians take note: Waiheke is also famed for its system of World War II gun emplacements and network of underground tunnels, which are open for exploration, making the island one of the most well-rounded tourist destinations in the country.
