Bespoke lunch on a beach Exclusive access to private coastal farm Coastal, vineyard & bush short walks NZD$1,500 Full Day all included for 2 guests NZD$800 Half Day all included for 2 guests

When your priority is to take in as much of the islands natural beauty, in one day, all the while travelling in total luxury. You’ll forgo a long restaurant lunch, and have more time to take in the islands four corners. Your lunch will be either a delightful wood fired pizza or bespoke picnic & wine on the beach. You'll take in a mix of some short & easy bush, vineyard & coastal walks, and sample Waiheke artisan honey and ice cream. And of course you can’t visit Waiheke without tasting some of its wine. Your wine tasting and platter will be beside the sea, at one of the islands best vineyards, Man O’War Vineyards. And exclusive to Hōpara is access to the stunning 4500 acre Man O' War Farm, which has without question the finest views of anywhere on Waiheke Island.
