Something for your 'Bucket List' and less than 30 minutes from Tairua! For two hours either side of low tide, natural springs pump hot water close to the surface. This is when visitors get out their spades and start digging their own personal hot tubs in the sand. Buckets are useful too, as the spring water can be so hot that is needs to be cooled down with Pacific sea water. The beach is large with great surf, but the springs cover a small area, so it can be crowded. Our tip – if you don't find space to dig your own tub, wait a while and a pre-dug one will become free!

Greeted by name upon arrival. Excellent attention to detail. Everything very well set out and really well looked after. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending (and have already done so for friends). Thank you very much Jane and Chris for looking after us!

It was a wonderful 2 night stay. Great view, comfortable rooms and a fantastic breakfast. Chris and Jane are wonderful hosts. We would recommend this spot to anybody. It is a great gateway to the tourist spots in Coromandel. We visited great beaches, a little winery and much more.
The hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful, really nice room with a small balcony. Breakfast from the upstairs balcony overlooking the bay was fantastic, we sat inside the second morning but still a great view and to top it off the breakfast was superb. Simply the best B&B we have ever...
