A very interesting place that I'm glad I've been to, but not a place I enjoyed because it was crowded on a weekend. Many people (especially teenagers) with shovels who walked into other people's pools and dig without courtesy. It was not relaxing and actually I was afraid someone might get hurt from the inconsiderate people with shovels.

I was told it's much more enjoyable on a weekday during school time when you can dig a hole and enjoy the hot water without being disturbed.

Make sure you get the tide information on that day. dig only between the two rocks. If you find people inside pools just dig next to them we tried to dig far but it did not work. The tide is usually low twice a day and the people at the reception helped us

I came with a friend on a rainy day. It was great with no one else around, but we weren't prepared to dig the hot water holes in the rain. Where would we leave our clothes, etc.? You need to bring or hire a spade. If you're not eager to put the work in, that's okay, just come by and walk amongst the hot water - the tide needs to be low, but you can see the steam and the tracks the hot water leaves in the sand. And it is hot!

this was a really fun experience. hired spades from an art gallery opposite the beach and made our way down. we had a few false starts and digging our 'hot water baths' but once we found a good spot, it was really fun. the water can get really hot so we had to keep expanding our pool.
only drawback was the parking - seemed quite expensive for the area.

If staying near the coromandel his beach is worth a visit - just check the tide timetable as it is only viable from 2 hours before to 2 hours after low tide. It is clearly signposted (its off hot water beach road) and is one of the few places we visited that required you to pay for parking. Either take a spade, or hire one from the cafe or gallery ($5) and head along the beach to the rocks, you'll know where it is as there will be a crowd of people there. Choose your spot carefully as you can dig a hole that's freezing then 1 metre to the side dig one that will scald you and be aware the temperature will fluctuate - if you time it right you can even jump into someone else's when they vacate. Do not attempt to swim in the water the currents are dangerous but a paddle to cool off may be required
