What you need to know
Flanking the beautiful Lake Wakatipu, come summer Queenstown Beach is filled with people sunning themselves, splashing about and just enjoy the gorgeous Queenstown weather. If being active is your ideal summer holiday at the beach then you're in luck as you can hire a range of water sport equipment including paddle boats, kayaks and SUPs.
The crystal clear water of the lake is begging you to dive in and the stretch of beach offers plenty of room for you to pull up a towel and picnic. Completely free of charge (with the exception of hire equipment) this is a perfect way to spend a summers day in Queenstown.
