Lovely spot, with a pontoon not too far out to swim too. Superb views, a small playground and a couple of places to get a bite to eat - well worth a visit.

Only came to the beach for the sunset and was not disappointed. There were some very bright colours in the sky that look a lot better in person than on a photograph. I would recommend going one evening for the sunset.

Foreget Taupo, Kinloch is a must for all visitors into the area, the beach is lovely and clean, the lake is weed free and you don't have to walk out far to get wet. Kinloch Beach is unspoilt, and a very special place to visit.
