At 175 kilometers from Auckland in Australia there is a unique place - a beach with hot water. Unlike Glass Beach or Sigayya Beach unusual resort in New Zealand is fully created by nature.

Hot Water Beach in New Zealand

How to take a bath with hot thermal water?

The hot geothermal water has a crack in the rock deep beneath the sandy beach and it rises to the top, soaking the sand. Over a small patch of the source is located between the boundaries of high and low water, so it's hidden under the ocean all the time, except for the 3-4-hour intervals during the actual ebb. The water temperature is very high, about 64 ° C, but gradually mixing with the surf of the ocean and cooling down in the air, it is quite comfortable and relaxingly warm after couple of minutes. If tourists prefer to swim in colder water, there are other places to visit in New Zealand - enigmatic Koekohe Beach and amazing Piha Beach.

Hot spot for travelers

Keep in mind that the shovels and pails should not necessarily be taken along to the vacation (for the average tourist, it looks rather difficult and uncomfortable), and can be rented in a small shop, located near the beach. Just do not expect that at Hot Water Beach you can be alone with your beloved one - the place is very popular among travelers. Annually this natural wonder in New Zealand attracts about 130,000 people.
