Onetangi Beach

Onetangi Beach is the largest beach on Waiheke Island. Onetangi Bay's north-facing beach extends for 1.87 kilometres. In the distance, the Great Barrier and Little Barrier Islands can be seen from the shore.

The beach is one of the walkways on Waiheke Island. The path crisscrosses the area, providing breathtaking views from the cliffs above the beach. The walk will last about an hour and will allow you to see mature bush remnants such as a nikau grove and a kauri in Victoria Reserve.
