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!

What to discover in Hot water beach
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.
This was a beautiful home away from home. The hosts were so helpful, courteous and friendly. Comfy rooms and great shower. It is set in walking distance to downtown and right on the ocean. . They serve a delicious breakfast. Their home is as clean as I’ve ever seen a B&B. They even did...
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!
