Hi, Can anyone comment on the doability of a visting the Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula leaving from Rotorua with the need to get to Auckland by 6.30pm?
I have checked the low tide time and it is 12 midday on the day we would be visiting so I am hoping that fits in perfectly.
I see mention that you need to take a shovel and bucket. Is it possible to hire these locally?
Also, I note that some of the postings around the hot water beach say that it can get quite crowded. Is this likely to be the case on October 2nd (during NZ school holidays)?
