If simple pleasures, charm, serenity and nourishment for the soul are what you after, you can do no better than a week-end at Connells Bay. The great food and wine of Waiheke Island is only a gravel road ride away but try tearing yourself away from this spot with its garden of roses, tuis in the trees and water lapping in the bay. The fact you can wander among the many sculptures of the park at your leisure, some beautifully narrative, others eclectic and puzzling, makes this a unique experience. If you want to do one special, romantic thing in Auckland, this is the place.
