Te Whau Lodge | Best Instagram Spots

Waiheke Island is officially the most instagrammed location in New Zealand. That’s hardly surprising, given our abundance of pristine beaches, stunning natural vistas, world-class restaurants, and attractive vineyards.

If you want to share your next getaway on Waiheke Island, here are the top shots you absolutely need to get:

1. Lazing on a boat with champagne

Nothing says summer at Waiheke like being out on the water. @rebecca_dieu’s pic is just one of hundreds showing a relaxing ride on the waves.

2. Walking between the vines at a top vineyard

@anyaskripnikova has it right – nothing says welcome to summer like dancing in the vineyards kissed by the Pacific sun.

3. Wine tasting in style

A glass of wine in the summer sun, a group of friends enjoying a tipple, or – like @worldofjessicaalice – a helicopter to transport you to your next destination, wine tasting on Waiheke is the epitome of indulgence and style.

Waiheke’s waters are perfect for swimming, so it’s no surprise people love to post pics of them enjoying the water. @lanavanhout is just one of many visitors taking a dip in Man O War Bay.

5. Wedding Prep

As one of New Zealand’s favourite wedding destinations, many Waiheke photographs on instagram are weddings. We love this gorgeous shot of a bride preparing for her big day from photographer @pamela_mansell.

6. Delicious food

Capture the freshness and uniqueness of Waiheke cuisine and make all your friends jealous by shooting your food. @stephanie.p08 is enjoying local oysters and floral spritzers at one of our favourite haunts – the Oyster Bay Inn.

7. Breathtaking scenery

From rugged coastlines and native trees to local flora and fauna, Waiheke scenery is a feast for the eyes. @chlovand shot this amazing image of the Waiheke coastline that, in her words, “sums up why I love New Zealand.”

8. Jumping during sunset

Is there any more quintessential Waiheke instagram shot than taking an enormous leap in the air during a breathtaking sunset, throwing your body into a silhouette against nature’s beautiful backdrop? As @travellerczech aptly demonstrates, no, there is not.

If you’re heading to Waiheke, make sure you keep your camera with you at all times. Don’t miss that perfect Waiheke #nofilter moment.
