HOT WATER BEACH
Hot Water Beach is a 'Must Do' activity when visiting our area.
Come to Hot Water Beach for the unique experience of digging your own natural spa pool. There are two fissures at Hot Water Beach issuing water as hot as 64C (147F) at a rate as high as 15 litres/minute. This water contains large amounts of salt (NOT salt water), calcium, magnesium, potassium, fluorine, bromine and silica. There are other hot water springs nearby but the location of these two springs on the beach make them unique. The hot springs are only accessible at low tide, however more often than not two hours each side of low tide, will still provide you with an opportunity to dig your own spa. Spades are available for hire at a local store

The beach also boasts some great surf, cruisy cafés and galleries and only a 5 minute drive to another Coromandel ‘must do’ – the walk into Cathedral Cove.
