We're in the Coromandel for new year. It's my first visit to this part of the country and one that's long overdue. It's a great place to relax with friends. We're enjoying the beautiful weather and a range of activities within an hour of our accommodation, but more about that later.
Yesterday, we drove out to Hot Water Beach, famous for its ... well, hot water pools on the beach. Considered one of New Zealand's premium destinations, visitors flock to this tiny town armed with spades to dig their own little spa pools in the sand. And the water certainly is hot.

This is the tranquil view you'll meet when you first arrive at Hot Water Beach. It really is beautiful.

Don't let the busyness put you off. Hot Water Beach is definitely one to tick off your travel bucket list.
