The Coromandel Peninsula is renowned for it's beaches and although spring was now in full swing it still wasn't quite sunbathing weather, we did however get our swimming gear on for the famous hot water beach. Two hours either side of low tide you can dig your own hole in the sand (with a spade you rent) and create your very own natural spa pool in the relaxing hot water. Like other areas of NZ thermal activity brews beneath the sands surface here. It was great fun, once the tide started to come in we had to build up the walls so the cold seawater wouldn't get in, Matt battled to save ours but finally gave in when a huge wave washed our whole pool away - it was like being a kid again!
