In Wānaka, our lakes and rivers are the heart of our region and in the heat of the summer months (and the odd winter dip), both locals and visitors flock to the shores for some respite from that famously intense New Zealand sunshine.

If you’re new to Wānaka, or just haven’t had the fortune of meeting a local to show you the goods yet, let us help you out. We’ve curated this list of our favourite and most unique swimming spots in Wānaka.
