Beautiful spot. Natural, laid back and free also. We stopped there in august 2010, 2 days after completing the Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk and it was a beautiful place to relax even when it was pretty cold outside the water. Because it was totally out of season then, we had it for ourselves – a fantastic experience. The place is wonderful, but because it´s free, it atracts not so wonderful people. There are broken beer bottles all ovrer the place even under water so I was not brave enough to leave my sandals on the shore (that´s why I mark 9 of 10).
