Church Bay Circuit

Published: 26 September 2019

Spectacular views, a picturesque reservation and an area of historical importance are features of the occasionally strenuous walk. Follow the beach to the southern end, cross the stream and climb the hillside to the very first track intersection.

Matiatia/Owhanake Loop.

The beginning of this walk is perfect before or after breakfast - the brief version circuit takes about an hour out of here. Stroll down our private bush trail, cross the coast trail, choose your direction left or right and proceed! The major loop takes about 3 hours at a leisurely pace, while side trips take in a number of Waiheke Island's historic highlights.

Leave directly onto the coast track from Marino Ridge. Allow about frothy five minutes to walk 2.5 kilometres one way from Marino Ridge into the village through the shore, Korora Road and after that up from Oneroa Beach.

Oneroa / Blackpool Stretch.

This walk is perfect to take in as much of the island as possible without moving too much from Oneroa Village. Allow about frothy five minutes to walk 2.5 km one way from here to the village. Then leave as much time as you need as you stroll from one end of the island to another. Leave directly onto the coast track from Marino Ridge.
