Hot Water Beach Recreation Reserve is situated on eastern coast of Coromandel peninsula. The beach is several kilometers south of Hahei. Two hours before low tide and tow ours after is possible to dig your own hole which would fill up with hot thermal water. You can have your own private thermal bath here. Straight on the beach are hot springs. Whole beach is under water during high tide.
Because dangerous currents it could be difficult to get back on the beach so when swimming you have to be very carefull. Camping is prohibited on whole beach and there is not any official campsite.
You can rent a shovel to dig your own bath at near kiosk, just use already abandoned hole or maybe best way is just to join some pretty girl. When digging your own hole be careful as water filling the hole could be very very hot.
