Water has the colour of Coca Cola, good for a swim.

Nice and kinda funny spot, but nothing special.
A big brown lake next to a nice beach!
The lake is called Roto Po Kaka and a bit hard to find. Park at the marked spot, where the toilets are, and walk along the beach where the motorhomes are in the freedom camping zone. There's a sign, which shows the lake on the right.

Lake really looks like Cola, but for me only smelt like normal water. A little hard to find.
Do not miss Doubtless Bay nearby.

Place only known to locals, hardly signposted. Lake looks and smells look it is coca cola. Swimming in it is supposed to have healing powers.
