Fun on the Water

Recreation in the Lakes Region revolves around water because it’s everywhere! While visitors to Lake Winnipesaukee often gawk at some of the lavish estates that dot the shoreline, locals are proud to have preserved public access to our beautiful lakes for everyone.

Here is a listing of the public beaches in the region that are not restricted to local residents.
