Waiheke’s two best beaches are Onetangi, a long stretch of white sand at the centre of the island, and Palm Beach, a pretty little horseshoe bay between Oneroa and Onetangi. Both have nudist sections; head west just past some rocks in both cases. Oneroa and neighbouring Little Oneroa are also excellent, but you'll be sharing the waters with moored yachts in summer. Reached by an unsealed road through farmland, Man O' War Bay is a compact sheltered beach that's excellent for swimming.
