The lake is huge, one of the biggest in the world. It provides 80% of the water used in Foz de Iguaçu and have places used by the community, like beaches.

Big manmade lake..nothing special about the shoreline or view..there is a 2 hour boat ride where you can see the sunset and the evening sky..this is the best part..would only recommend the 7:00 p.m. ride so you can see the sunset..good for couples..

Slow, trip out onto the water which has the potential to provide wonderful sunset pictures if the clouds are right.

I did the panoramic tour of Itaipu and the bus crosses the top of the dam and stops at the top for photo ops. There is an option to take a boat onto the lake but no one took it.

This is a huge lake which borders the Itaipu Dam. The dam is visible from a boat on the lake which is a fun activity

the lake itaipy is nothing too special, obviously if you are visit the dam you might as well take some time and go see the lake too.

I believe this area is just being developed and well be a really good recreational area in the future. It was interesting to see it on the dam tour
