We saw some videos and pictures of the place, but that was nothing compared to live it by yourself. We got there and soon tried to dig a hole in the sand to get some warm volcanic heated water, but we found *almost* boiling water...More
Although we arrived on a cold windy day, 2 hours before low tide the people were coming along with those of us who weren't going to strip off. In a specific spot between the rocks yes the hot water does seep up, in places nearly...More
Hot water beach is a must-do, and a bit bonkers. The hot water comes up out of the sand in one specific place, and only findable for three hours or so at low tide. So when you arrive you will find maybe 100 people engaged...More

the thing with Hot Water Beach is that you need to go there 2 hours before to 2 hours after low tide. the natural underground springs are at the low tide mark. it's not too cold in May to visit as the springs are really warm. More
