Do you want the best of both worlds by playing in cool tidal waves and relaxing in bubbling hot springs? Look no further than the truly unique Hot Water Beach in scenic New Zealand. Near the treacherous waves of the rocky beach, visitors can dig small pools in the ground to activate hot springs babbling through underground fissures. Bring your own shovel or rent digging tools from near-by resorts. The springs can be as hot as 64 degrees Celsius, making for a truly relaxing jacuzzi next to the cool salt-water waves. In addition to the natural water wonders, visitors can also admire near-by rain forests, coves and grassy plains.
