Access: Via River Taxi from Manapouri

This short walk is an easy 1-1.5 hour return to the lake edge where you can enjoy the stunning views or have a refreshing swim. The walk is great for young families as the water gently slopes out; no big holes or sudden drops in the depth of water. It's likely that you'll have the beach all to yourself, it's certainly not busy and a great swimming spot.

A great option for anyone who wants to experience our native bush but with limited time, or wanting a more gentle walk.
