Waiheke Island Summer Bucket List

As I am finally spending a full summer on Waiheke Island this year, my friends and I decided to put together a bucket list of all the things we want to do, wines to taste, and food to eat.  I have already done some of these last summer, but the goal is to make it through this entire list THIS summer!  I’ve also added a few things I think anyone visiting the island should do.  If you’re looking to visit my little slice of paradise off the coast of Auckland, you will find this list helpful!
