Stunning beach at sunset, but most important you can take a hot bath using a pond made by yourself. We did it using our own hands...
Sometimes digging the sand, you find just cold water in other occasions you find hot water, so hot that...More
Get there early, bear in mind that you will dig a decent hole in sand to lie down, allow time for that. Don’t get burned, that includes the hot water coming up from the ground. Mix multiple streams to create the right temperature, your own...More
A very unique experience. This was our first time here. While we parked in the pay parking (close to the showers, bathrooms, rental shovels), next time we would have parked in the free parking down the road. As we arrived at the hole digging zone,...More
Not worth the drive up the Coromandel Peninsula just for this, only go if you're also visiting somewhere else on the peninsula. The area where you can actually dig for hot water is about 10m x 10m, so is immediately full of people.

It was fun we dug our pool and...More

Also beware the water gets boiling hot! It’s a happy medium to find our...More

Tips...$4 an hour parking, you need a spade, there are change...More
We saw some videos and pictures of the place, but that was nothing compared to live it by yourself. We got there and soon tried to dig a hole in the sand to get some warm volcanic heated water, but we found *almost* boiling water...More
the thing with Hot Water Beach is that you need to go there 2 hours before to 2 hours after low tide. the natural underground springs are at the low tide mark. it's not too cold in May to visit as the springs are really warm. More
