Kinloch Beach is a nice quite place to enjoy Lake Taupo with a cute little marina, a couple of small shops and plenty of beach and grass to have that picnic lunch.

A lovely lake beach, however has quite a steep incline making the water get deep quite quickly. As a result probably not the best for young kids or children who are poor swimmers.
