Nestled behind high dunes of black sand, Lake Wainamu is a popular freshwater swimming mecca, and makes a great respite from the powerful wind and treacherous riptides of the nearby oceanfront at Te Henga/Bethell's Beach. The picturesque Waitohi falls are located only a short hike away, but be advised that there isn’t much in the way of beachfront abutting the lake. There is no cost to visit Wainamu, and it is accessible by foot from Bethell's Beach park area.

This site is not monitored due its history of excellent water quality. Auckland Council considers the water here "low risk" to public health.

Auckland Council’s Safeswim program monitors water quality throughout Auckland's Coastal and Freshwater beaches. The monitoring season starts the first week of November until the end of March. Sampling takes place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and results are expected in time for the weekend.

Freshwater is tested to measure E.coli levels. Lake Kereta, Lake Ototoa, Lake Slipper, Lake Tomarata are tested for cyanobacteria (toxic algae) where a potential problem exists.

An amber alert is issued by Safeswim when test results show E.coli levels higher than 260 units / 100ml of water. Warning are issued when a single sample test result show E.coli levels higher than 550 units / 100ml of water.

Swim Guide checks for the latest information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season. Results are also available on the latest monitoring pages for beaches and lakes and via 0800 723 379.
