Rocky Bay, also known as Omiha, is a relatively isolated community on the southern coast of Waiheke. The centre of the village contains what's left of the Rocky Bay Store, the Omiha Memorial Hall run by the Omiha Welfare and Recreation Society, the War Memorial flagpole (and bus terminus), and the Rocky Bay Memorial Cruising Club located in Pohutukawa Road near the remains of the village's wharf.
Rocky Bay was the first place on Waiheke Island to be connected to the national electrical grid, in 1957. The previous year, it became the last community to be connected to the island's road network when O'Brien Road was completed. Prior to that, Rocky Bay was accessible only by boat, on horseback, or on foot.
