About the location

Close to Taupo Central, Five Mile Bay is a peaceful settlement on the Eastern shores of Lake Taupo. Spend the day out on the lake, visiting the nearby points of interest around Taupo such as Huka Falls, or fishing in the Waitahanui River. A favourite way to end a relaxing or action-packed day is to head down to the beach and watch the sunset over Mt. Ruapehu.
