Owner description: The largest of a dozen lakes formed by volcanic activity, this clear, calm lake offers cruises, kayaking and sailing, as well as great trout fishing.

I was there many times. The things I like in Lake Rotorua is that the place itself is very beautiful to look at. Fresh air and a very clean lake.

You can do island tour, a helicopter tour, para sailing, jet ski etc. There's a place to play golf and tennis as well. Or simply sit on the lakeside and watch the view.

You may enjoy the unlimited pizza at Pizza hut but you have to pay. Oh man!!! The best I ever had, eating varieties of pizza.

During weekends they do have night and farmers market where organic and fresh agricultural products for you.

Spent most of one afternoon walking around, enjoying the sunshine and atmosphere. Always clean and tidy and always a pleasure to visit

Splendid location and a drive out to the Northern end of the lake along Hamurana Road gave us some great views and photo opportunities.
Was amazed by the amount of black swans on the lake along with ducks of some description and a gaggle of geese who also got in on the act!
Managed to find a great spot for early dinner as well at the Clubhouse Cafe & Bar at Marama Resort which will give you some great views of the lake as the sun sets...

Free and beautiful. Nice walk with lots of people doing interesting things on the weekend.
Good exercise, a few interesting sights to be seen. The smell is part of the experience, you soon adapt.

Let's face it, Roturua smells in places and the lakeside is one of them. But that's what makes Roturua unique and get past the overwhelming desire to hurl and you'll see the tru beauty of the lake. The smell will probably only bother you for a short while and after that there's loads to do on and around the lake.
