‘The Small Lake’, Lake Rotoiti in the Bay of Plenty area of New Zealand is a relatively large lake, contrary to its name and is near the famous Lake Rotorua. It is a popular site for the tourists who wish to go on a boating trip, with the beautiful Manupirua Hot Springs on the lake’s shore which can be reached only by boat. It is connected to Lake Rotorua via the Oahu Channel, and this affected the quality of the lake water in the 1960s. An improvement has however been noticed here with the construction of a safety barrier to prevent the nitrogen-rich water from entering Lake Rotoiti.
To the northern shore of Lake Rotorua in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand is ‘the small lake’, Lake Rotoiti. With breathtaking views and beautiful sights, this lake is a tourist hotspot for boating experiences and kayak trips from the lake to the exquisite Manupirua Springs Hot Pools. The only way to these hot pools are through boats and while on guided tours, you will be informed about the history of this place and the local Māori stories.
