Oneroa is a lovely beach that is long and flat... super for a morning or evening walk. Everyone is friendly and says hi!

This is a 1.8km beach of gentle sloping golden sand down to pristine aqua waters.
Lots of shells to collect & a huge amount of Oyster Catchers to see.
The beach is served regularly by buses & there are a good choice of restaurants & cafes to visit. There is also a garage, liquor store & beach shop serving ice creams, snacks & coffees.

Spectacular beach - safe and sandy beach. A short walk from Oneroa Cafes and restaurants. Just a short bus ride from the Waiheke ferry terminal. There are often lots of pleasure craft in the bay.

Good location for the shops and restaurants. Easy to access from the ferry via a short 2 min bus trip from the terminal. Just get off at any of the Oneroa shops and you can easily walk down the steep paths to the beach.
Often good for boat and people watching, nice for a stroll, sunbathing.
Picnic benches along the beach at certain spots and a children’s swing / play area.

Our five weeks vacation touring both islands of New Zealand ended with a long stroll along the quiet beach, admiring shells that we never saw and following many of the clam catchers at work for their food.
Public amenities are clean and a BBQ is ready to be used for free as well, to our pleasant surprise.
Way to go! Everybody is welcome! Friendly New Zealand! We love you.

Lovely quiet beach on Waiheke Island. No big waves, close to the main street. Can grab an ice cream and go for a lovely walk.

ONEROA.

Great little beach, not crowded.
Short walk UPHILL to amenities, centre of village.

If you are on a boat🐳
Yeap- there is no dingy dock or floating docks.

So you will get WET!
If you have a small dingy with a motor until 15 hp you will have no issues pulling her up onto the beach.
Tidal- it's fairly flat bottom.

BIGGER TENDERS

If you are like us and have a bigger tender....
Oooooo
It's a bit painful!

Go to the "NW corner" as it is calmer, avoid the dunkers!
( Waves in the centre of bay)

We anchor out-
yes you don't have much choice.

You can time it perfectly with the tide timetable, to not get to wet.

LITTLE ONEROA
This is the cutest bay, and a fish shop and local store. But beware the waves can be real dumpers!
Choose your day, and it is very pleasant for quick supplies without having to walk up a hill to shop.
