Enjoying a BBQ at Peninsula BayWhat does Peninsula Bay offer purchasers?
With Peninsula Bay’s spectacular lake and mountain views, northwest aspect, all day sun and the excellent position within Wanaka, you can feel absolutely assured that a purchase of a Peninsula Bay section will be a great investment for the future.

Proximity to the lake makes the area a haven for water sports enthusiasts. The walking and mountain biking trails with links to existing riverside tracks open up a myriad of options for those who enjoy the outdoors.

These are some of the best sections on the market in Wanaka today and Peninsula Bay could be the last Wanaka subdivision to offer views of this calibre for some time.
