Volcanoes near this beach on the eastern edge of New Zealand's North Island develop large underground reservoirs of extremely hot water. Over time, this water escapes to the surface, cooling along the way, though still emerging at temperatures as hot as 64 C. The hot springs are accessible only at low tide, so grab a shovel and dig your own spa.
Hot Water Beach, between Tairua and Whitianga, Coromandel., N.Z. Two hours either side of low tide, with the help of a spade you can dig your own natural hot pool. These hot springs come from an underground river, heated under the earth and seeping to the Pacific Ocean.
