A firm favourite and just a 10 minute drive from town, this picturesque bay on the shore of Lake Wanaka is the perfect spot to take a plunge.
Jumping off the wharf and swimming out to the pontoon is a rite of passage for kids here in Wanaka. Bring out the inner child - give it a try - backflips optional!
A swimming spot like no other - in a lake on an island on a lake on the South Island in the ocean! Get there with Eco Adventures Wanaka.
Tranquil, beautiful and only 15 minute drive from Wanaka. Lake Hawea definitely rivals Lake Wanaka and you'll easily find a spot of your own. (Good place for paddle boarding too!)
