Taupo’s main attraction is the lake and all the things you can do in, on and around it. The water is famously chilly, but in several places (such as Hot Water Beach, immediately south of the centre) there are thermal springs just below the surface. You can swim right at the township, but Acacia Bay , 5km west, is a particularly pleasant spot. Even better and quieter is Whakaipo Bay , another 7km further on.
