Winter in Waiheke: make it the perfect escape
June 1, 2022

When you get to experience winter in Waiheke, you discover that this beautiful island is meant to be enjoyed in every season, with each of its wonders. You may have heard this is one of the top summer destinations, but now you are about to understand why this place is a haven all year long.

How is winter in Waiheke?

Waiheke Island is located within a short distance from Auckland city, from where you can get the passenger or the car ferry, in a journey that takes an average of 35 minutes. It’s quite close to the city, yet you will feel you are a world away.

Even though it is so near Auckland, the island takes advantage of a slightly warmer climate than the city, with winter temperatures on an average of 19C during the day, and 9C during the evening.

Summer, on the other hand, gets a daily temperature that may reach 29C, which practically sends all visitors to the stunning beaches around the island. On top of that, to refresh and replenish body and soul, our guests can also take advantage of a private beach accessible via a bushwalk or a short drive from our luxury villas.

Less crowded beaches during winter in Waiheke

As you may be guessing, since summer is the high season for the island, this may just as well be one of the main reasons many tourists choose to come to Waiheke in winter: less crowded beaches!

Considering that the temperatures are not extreme, this means that they are still able to enjoy the beach a little, but also take the time to experience other amusements of Waiheke that get even more special with low degrees.
