Rotokakahi is the Maori name for the Green Lake. It is located next to the Blue Lake in Rotorua. This lake was named by the Maori for its abundance of shellfish (kakahi). It is larger and oblong in outline than the Blue Lake. It appears emerald green in colour from the air due to a shallower, sandy bottom.

Rotokakahi is 1,302 feet above sea level and 69 feet below the level of the Blue Lake.

The lake is sacred (tapu) to Maori so retains its peaceful, undisturbed beauty.
