There are many waiheke walks but this one offers backyards, beaches and barbecues! This average fitness, 1.5 hour walk follows the magnificent northern coastline on Waiheke Island.
Starting at Little Oneroa Beach and finishing at Palm Beach, there is a regular (usually at quarter past the hour, every hour) public bus service. Don’t forget your fishing gear, togs and sausages for the free public barbecues!
From Little Oneroa Beach follow the coastal track south through Newton Road Reserve up to Newton Road. Walk up Queens Drive, turn left down Watters Glen Reserve continuing to follow the coastline tracks to Sandy Bay. Follow the road to Enclosure Bay, turn right down Empire Avenue and up through McKenzie Reserve to Coromandel Road. Turn left on to Hauraki Road continuing down Cory Road to Palm Beach Lookout and Little Palm and Palm Beaches. At Palm Beach, there are several bus stops along Palm Road.
