On the northern shores of Lake Taupo, picturesque Acacia Bay has a swimming platform during the summer months, and there is jetty access. From here you can kayak to impressive Māori rock carvings in Mine Bay, which are only accessible by water.
This site is only monitored for recreation every second year. It will be monitored next in the 2019/20 summer. Data from the past three monitored bathing seasons shows that the Overall Recreation Risk here is caution.
