We actually drove there since it started raining when we got to wanaka. However it was still breathtaking. Would have loved to walk it but ended up sitting in our car or taking pictures.

Visited on Wednesday 9th May. We parked our campervan and went for a walk along the track beside the lake. Great to get some exercise or just to stretch your legs after a long drive.

This is an easy walk but a busy one with bikers, walkers and runners sharing the track. There are some great views of the lake and some fun places to take photos.

Beacon point walk is a gentle walk, with a gravel footpath. Plenty of parking for cars and campervans. Stunning panoramic views of the bay with many ice cream shops across the street!

This an easily accessible walk (it starts from the town!) and is very easy to do as there is no gradient. Early in the morning or in the early evening will offer the greatest rewards. Past the end of the developed track you can continue...More

Lovely, easy walk - enjoyable way to spend an evening. We carried on walking a little further to Bremner Bay where the water was shallow and there were a few children paddling and families having picnics.
