We were not disappointed with our Top 10 campsite at Hot Water Beach. I’d say it is the best one we have stayed on so far. It has a lovely little playground, a skate ramp and a big jumping pillow to keep the kids happy. The main facilities block has a lovely big kitchen and dining area, a smaller quiet room and a laundry room. The showers and toilets were warm and clean, and there was a great family bathroom with unlimited hot water, which did us fine! ...

Hot water beach

... We had brought a spade, but many people had rented one locally. Yes, some people earn money renting spades to tourists.

Lots of sun cream!

Mid afternoon we got to Hahei and our accommodation, which was ...

Today was all about beaches. We had always wanted to stay at hot water beach but yesterday I had finally managed to acquire a book on New Zealand so could look into the area more thoroughly. We git to the campsite by lunchtime and booked in, the hot water beach was a 10 min walk away. We asked what time to go down to the beach and the lady at reception said low tide was at 6.30 so from 4.30 onwards. ...

... almost as big as the original shake. An experience!

The Ring Goes South
And thus ends the North Island. I missed quite a lot out, but feel I’ve covered some of the highlights. I’d be here forever if I obsessively jotted down everything, but I’m sure you’re not interested in how many games of Monopoly Cards I won or how many hours of sleep I averaged per night*. Some of the group split in Wellington. We remained for ...
