The Hot Water Beach is a lovely attraction to visit near Whitianga. This beach seems like just any other and you can do all the typical sun sand and sea stuff here. You can laze around, try para-sailing, enjoy the view or play beach volley ball. But the beach holds an interesting surprise as well.
Around two hours before and two hours after the low tide, the beach becomes the perfect spa retreat. If you dig a hole into the sand the water from the heated river underneath makes your little hole into an oasis and the perfect hot water spring bath. This experience is exciting fun and a must have.
While a lot of people will take their own tools to make the little indents, you can always rent a spade and a bucket from the store at the beach. Children and adults alike will enjoy this attraction a lot.
- Do not swim at the beach if there are tide warnings. It is extremely dangerous.
