Waiheke’s longest, sandiest beach, Onetangi is the destination for white sand and untouched blue horizons. Opposite a cafe, restaurant, bar and several sources of accommodation including the Onetangi Beach Apartments and The Sands, Onetangi is a favourite not only for the ceremony/photo session but also for families to stay during their time on Waiheke.

Photographically, Onetangi Beach is a jewel in Waiheke crown although can be harsh and HOT enough to fry an egg on. Lets just say that if you are planning a daytime beach wedding along Onetangi in the height of summer, the romantic idea of going barefoot should be reconsidered (although this is quite amusing for your guests!).
LOCAL TIP: It’s not unknown for there to be more than one beach wedding along Onetangi on any given summer weekend so make sure you get planning permission.
Lovely even in winter… if it wasn’t for the woolly hat you wouldn’t even know!
