Palm Beach Lookout Path
This walk includes one of Waiheke’s most iconic viewing spots as well as some fantastic coastal trails. You’ll get great views of the Hauraki Gulf and get to walk some lesser-known trails near famous Palm Beach. Since the path is divided into two loops, you can complete only half of it if you are short on time or resources.
There are some steep climbs, but the views are well worth it. In the winter, some parts can be a little damp and muddy.
