  • We are lucky to have family who live at Lake Rotoiti and it is paradise on earth. Clear, clean water to swim in, forest covered mountains and old fashioned holiday houses dotting the edge of the lake....  more »
  • A beautiful lake. Great for water skiing, wake boarding, swimming, paddle boarding etc. The hot pools are outstanding.  more »
  • This Lake reminded me of the Coromandel, it is stunning and you can see a long way across the lake. The winding road is quaint and a delight to drive along. Just hard to keep your eyes on the road.  more »
