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!

If you have an hour or so, and want some exercise, biking or walking to Beacon Point is a worthwhile activity.

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.

If you are not into the long "real" walks around stunning Wanaka this is an ideal opportunity - enjoying great views, a kind of exercise for people who follow Churchill with his "sport is murder" :-) .

While you're in Wanaka, head to Beacon Point beach for sunset. Other than a few runners and a bunch of baby rabbits, I had the whole place to myself. Magical!
